Third, Alvarez posits that military women are indispensable in the Iraq and Afghanistan because women can do as much as men do, or even more than men do for cultural reasons. Even though, women soldiers play important roles in the war, no one wants to elevate the status
Many people soon began to admire the patriotism of these women who had been denied equality for so long by a large proportion of the country now wanted to help maintain the same country. Women began to take a major role in a wide range of industries including Munitions, Hospitals and farm land. They also took over industries that had been male dominated before the war including the police with the creation of the Women Police Volunteers and shipbuilding due to dilution. Women also were able to enter the armed forces due to the creation of the Women’s Auxiliary Army Corps. This amount of enthusiasm and energy women showed at work changed male attitude towards them and many realised these women were perfectly capable of being able to vote.
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
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
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?
I believe very strongly in a woman’s right to choose what is right for her and her family. Women who seek to join elite military units may be looking for career advancement, leadership opportunities, or the chance to prove their honor and worth in the most competitive field imaginable. They want the same opportunities to excel as their brothers in arms. They want to be treated as equals, something that can never happen as long as the military continues its current policy of gender
Women’s AFL deserves the same publicity as men’s AFL. In the feature article ‘Playing for Keeps’ in the West Australian is a carefully constructed article aimed at all people involved in a sport to persuade them that women’s AFL should be as big as the men’s. the main points the journalist rises are that women don’t want to be like men all they want is to be able to play the game on a scale like men have, the other idea explored is because of the low publicity of women’s AFL it is finically difficult for them to use AFL as full time employment. The journalist accomplishes his/her goal of persuading you that women’s AFL deserves more recognition by appealing to our heart or morals through the use of anecdotal evidence and interviews, the article
At first, female nurses weren’t used at first since they use male nurses rather than female nurses, who were in fact much cleaner than the males. Women were often trying to join the army and show that women too can fight, by disguising themselves as men and fighting. They also served as
Tran Trung Thao S3324298-G2 Final Draft Critical response to the article “No Women in Combat” After catastrophic wars, there was a huge amount of people that was mostly from military died to protect their countries and people lives for a beautiful future. Therefore, everyone can seem to feel the pains and agonies of the military, so calling women for the military service may be more likely unsatisfactory. This is also the reason for the appearance of the article “No Women in Combat” by Darren Graves from the Union of Military Men. The author shows three main points to prove that women are not fit to be in combat and some facts to supporting his ideas. The article is presented well with strong arguments but there are also some points that are needed to improve.
I believe it would be harder to show a greater negative affect than a positive effect in this matter. In conclusion I believe that the glass ceiling is “a transparent barrier that kept women from rising above a level in the military. It applies to women as a group who are kept from advancing higher because they are women” (Glass Ceiling, The Military). Men and women are equal and must be treated as such. Women have proven themselves competent and qualified for tasks and jobs in the military even under stressful and dangerous conditions.
