There are some arguments that being combat is just only for male and women should be banned from military jobs. In contrastwomen should be in combat is supported by many people. Leon Panetta- Defense Secretary, he has lifted the military's ban on women serving in combat on his announcement, it allows women into many front-line positions in combat. According to Williams (2013), " today Panette is acknowledging that to maintain the high standards of military, assignments should be based on ability, not gender". Surely, gender is not the main factor to decide that who can do good job in military because women can be a good sodier in some duties.
How Women Impacted WWII-Vishnu Patel Many have said that Canadian women’s contribution in WWII did lead to an allied victory. Women played a huge role and were very important in WWII. Canadian Women took part in WWII by joining the armed forces or they stayed home to raise families, crops for food and to fill the jobs that the men have left. Women weren’t allowed fighting in battle but they did many other things as well in war. After the war many women continued their career in the military force.
Introduction In the American civil war, thousands of women were involved as volunteer nurses in different military hospitals and the battle field. Although social taboos prohibited women from working outside their homes, women sought direct and convention involvement in the civil war. They focused on participating in the national struggle and pursuing career opportunities in the military rather than the traditionally confined domestic support roles. Women nurses experienced the detrimental and depressing constants of the civil war, such disease, as mutilated bodies, amputated limbs as well as death. In addition, they offered invaluable aid to the wounded and sick soldiers as well as medical authorities.
Jordan Wolf Lutze ENGL 110 23 September 2013 “Women, Military Service, and Gender Equality” The subject of women being allowed in the military has been debated for quite a while in the United States. Many people have very strong opinions about the capability of women to do certain jobs in the military, as well as the effects of women on the work place dynamics. In the beginning of America, in the time of the revolutionary war, it was common for a woman to disguise herself as a man in order to join the military efforts. This came to an end when the army began conducting thorough examinations to ensure that t only healthy males were enlisting. However, as time goes on, military positions have become more and more accessible to women in the United States.
How did some women try to force to government to employ more women? Emmeline Pankhurst, a leading suffragette, campaigned vigorously with one of her daughters, Christabel, to have women more involved in the war effort. The Pankhursts organised “The Right to Serve” procession in 1915 in which 60,000 women took part. The government was soon forced to change its mind and allow women into industry and other traditionally “male” jobs. It was the only way to keep up production.
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.
Women’s Roles Throughout the history of the United States, women have held many different roles in social, political and economic classes. Before the Civil War, a woman had a traditional role in the home, working as a housewife. The fight for equal and voting rights started but was unfortunately not continued until after the war. With new technology and industrial advances, women’s roles in the work force increased immensely and obtained many new opportunities. Although before the Civil War, women rarely took a part in society, the war significantly changed women’s roles in many ways.
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
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
The Russians used women as aircraft pilots, tank drivers and just about every other skill level other than the infantry. If women choose to join the military and play an active role in America's defense, they should be able to serve in combat or non-combat situations. Both men and women should equally share the responsibility for protecting the country. This is an issue for a number of reasons. First, many women want to serve their country and fight for it, rather than serve in behind the scenes functions.
