USMC "female engagement teams" for Afghanistan

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/03/07/world/asia/07women.html?hp

excerpt:

“…members of the first full-time “female engagement teams,” the military’s name for four- and five-member units that will accompany men on patrols in Helmand Province to try to win over the rural Afghan women who are culturally off limits to outside men. The teams, which are to meet with the Afghan women in their homes, assess their need for aid and gather intelligence, are part of Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal’s campaign for Afghan hearts and minds.”
