Historically, women have not served as members of the military for a number of reasons. Traditionally, society views women as weaker than men, physically and emotionally, and so women are deemed unfit for combat. Women play a vital role in military operations, and have served in combat in many other countries very successfully. Integrated armies have been very successful as when Russia fought the Germans in World War II, as well as in modern day Israel. The Russians used women as aircraft pilots, tank drivers and just about every other skill level other than the infantry.

Brinley Bruton, Staff Writer. This article also supports women in combat arms giving examples from other militaries and how they are constructed and how we should better our military by replicated their procedures. Though are we not a World Super Power should we not be the standard-bearers for military discipline and structure. It also should be known that by giving excuses to why women will or should not be allowed in combat arms is keeping this incorrigible proposition in place. Through media now Soldiers in Combat arms units will likely receive females differently because of how it has been portrayed, due to how they are supposed to respond instead of how they really feel.
Nilufar Mohammad Professor brunkala English 302 11 January 2015 response one Part 1 Military Women in Combat: Why making it Official Matters.” McGregor was inspired to write this piece because many people are under the misconception that women and men are treated as equals and some may even argue that women have it easier than men. The purpose of this piece was to challenge those assumptions and make more people will be aware that women are not treated better than men nor are they treated From the article i learn that there are men and women working towards lifting the restrictions. McGregor informs us that “female soldiers began formally moving into jobs in previously all male battalions a result of rule changes following a February report that opened some 14,000 new positions to women
Some countries, like India, say they allow women in their military, but there are very few of them and they aren’t allowed to do anything significant. They are also only allowed to serve for fourteen years, and they don’t get pensions or other benefits. The United States and the United Kingdom do allow women to serve, but both countries are very behind on giving women equal rights to men. The United Kingdom currently bas women from “all roles whose primary duty is to be close to and kill the enemy.” The United States bars women from serving on the front lines because of physical capability and tradition. Recently, women have been given the rights to fill certain roles, but none of them were on the ground and in combat until January of this year.
Before we begin any further, if you are expecting this speech to be something revolutionary I suggest you to leave. But if you are one of those courageous people who are brave enough to face the facts, then I will help you. I will help to take off the intangible blind folds that have hindered you from seeing the truth. And I will guarantee, you will regain those so obvious yet oblivious subconscious memories to realise that “female soldiers should be banned from serving in front line combat.” I have seen these expressions so many times from such a crowd that stand before me today. That exacerbating expression when I even mention the notion of female soldiers being prevented from bloodshed?
It is letting women take the chance to fight for the country in a time of crisis just like men. Mrs. Quindlen is valid in stating that it makes a “mockery” of the nation to only let men register and not women. It is degrading of women to say that because they are women that they are not required registering for the draft to help in a crisis. A poll done about ten years ago showed that over half of the American population supported drafting women. Should America only lose its sons in battle?
Favor Mbamalu Mrs. Scott-Jackson How the Civil War Affected the Roles of Women 12 January 2018 How the Civil War Affected the Roles of White Women Before the Civil War began, southern wealthy white women were only known to cook, take care of children, and were limited to only performing household tasks. Working-class southern white women were known to work and also perform the same household and domestic tasks that wealthy white women did. Thankfully, the Civil War gave these women a big chance to prove themselves by performing serious tasks that only men were known to do. The Civil War was very important in changing the role of women because they took on ¨man roles¨ like their husbands’ jobs, being nurses, spies, and even being soldiers and fighting in the war! For well-off southern white women who stayed at home during the war, there was a lot of responsibility to take on.
Women across the country who must go through the traumatizing horrors of abortion are often categorized as shameful. They are judged enough already and certainly don’t deserve to bear the burden of ugly legislation. Planned Parenthood is an organization who supports women’s rights and is in disagreement with the things that they must put women through because of these regulations. A recent bill in Texas called the “Women’s Right to Know Act” was passed and requires women to make at least two visits to the abortion clinic before the
There will always be two debating sides. I do feel the argument is much stronger to not allow women into combat arms because of the effect that it can have on their male counterparts in combat and how the treatment and deaths of more women dying would be perceived by the public; however I propose to strike a balance between the two sides. I believe that it would be possible to open up some combat arms fields as a study to gauge our success. This success would depend on women meeting the same physical, psychological, and practical standards as men. Then, as success is reached, other fields related to direct combat, such as special operations and infantry could be opened to
