Abstract [en]

Many countries are actively working towards increasing the representation of women within their military organizations, aiming to achieve enhanced military effectiveness and greater gender equality. However, the progress of this change is slow, necessitating an increase in recruitment and a decrease in attrition. This study investigates the reasons behind women leaving the Swedish Armed Forces. The findings demonstrate that women terminated their military careers primarily due to the absence of various motivational factors, with a lack of promotion or a sense of stagnation being the most prominent factor. Another contributing factor was the challenge of balancing family life with a military career. Often, a combination of multiple factors led to their departure. Surprisingly, the occurrence of sexual harassment did not appear to be a decisive factor in their decision to leave, contrary to previous research findings.
