Soldier Girls is a 1981 documentary film by Nick Broomfield and Joan Churchill about several women training in the US army.[1]

Under the aggressive Sergeant Abing are several young women, some dedicated to defending their country, others who seem to have been forced into joining by circumstance. Several of these recruits become harder and colder through the course of their basic training at Fort Gordon.

Excerpts from the film are used in U2's song "Seconds" on their third album, War.
