From the exploration of gender consciousness to the practice of subject consciousness The Life Transforming Journey of Military Women
Abstract Women can challenge more various positions in army for the latest 20 years, and this masculine environment also changes drastically because of women. Gender consciousness is the key factor which supports the process of integration and transformation among the multi characters of female soldiers. It happens during the process of transformation of female role, which is from objective role to subjective one. This research is going to clarify the transformation process and its impact of gender consciousness during the evolution in female soldier’s life. It will use Phenomenological Hermeneutic as the basis of Methodology of Philosophy to develop hermeneutical dialogues and meanings. The final purpose of the study is: 1. Women can reorganize their life processes through experiences narrating and create strength of self-empowerment and positive energy of perspective transformation during the multi-character transformation. 2. Examine the impacted aspects of army from the gender consciousness development process of female soldiers. Gender consciousness will become the important reflection of individual life experience, it can also become the discussion topic and public issue in military organization. Therefore, I choose three intermediate and senior female soldiers as objects of my study. They are all married mothers, and their names are Jade, Sadako, and Sisis. They reorganize life processes from narrating their experiences. In the research, I found that they all have their own main story lines, but they also have same trouble and epiphany. Gender consciousness is a reflection of various and moving process. It usually starts from deeper self-acknowledgement and awareness, containing introspection about life events and suppressing experiences. When female soldiers face the contradictions and dilemma between multi-characters in their lives, it is not only about struggles because of the conflicts between the concepts’ gaps, they actually learn to transform and adapt with the environment. Moreover, they can talk and communicate with all the characters in life with catholic and accepting attitude. Thus, Feminism’s aggressivity and anger for a long time because of accused gender conscious oppression can be skillfully changed. They can also find and agree with female subjectivity during the story-telling process. Last, I want to say that what I see in my research is female soldiers go through the process of asking, reflecting, and finding the own answer with more catholic and flexible attitude. Perspective transformations exist in every life aspects, to make changes and growth. Gender consciousness will create various explanations of female subjective consciousness after destructing the existing gender phenomenon. I hope that gender consciousness can not only be the important reflection of individual life process, but also be the life story book which every female soldier can read no matter what life stage she is in. Moreover, I hope that gender consciousness can become the public issue in military organization instead of being the issue which only exists in families.
