A Woman in Defence

by Karina Molloy

THE GRIPPING INSIDE STORY OF STELLAR CAREER IN THE IRISH DEFENCE FORCES, UP AGAINST ODDS THAT COULD ONLY BE FACED DOWN BY A WOMAN. Karina Molloy is a remarkable woman and an outstanding soldier. During her 31-year career in the Irish Defence Forces, she gained many firsts. First female to get promoted to Senior Non-Commissioned Officer (NCO) rank in the Irish Defence Forces. First to attempt the Army Ranger Wing selection course - Ireland's SAS equivalent - when it was considered impossible for female soldiers due to their status as non-combatants. And, to date, Karina has the most overseas service as a female Senior NCO, with a total of eleven tours of duty in five different mission areas under her belt. But despite her pioneering career, Karina faced many setbacks as a woman in an institution rife with misogyny - from sexual harassment and assault to routine bullying. And yet she persevered. A Woman of Honour is the often shocking story of a pioneering soldier who, through dogged determination, resilience and talent, forged her way in a man's world, and who continues today on a mission to make the Irish Defence Forces a safe and equitable place for women.
