Women have been in the military for many years. There was never an enormous problem with women being in the military until recent years. Most women quit before they even start because they believe the people that say they will not be able to make it. People believe that the only need for women in the military is for nurses or cooks, but that is not the case for some women. They do not get pushed to sign up or pushed to quit. Women should be allowed to be in combat because they willingly sign up, have been in war for years, and go through boot camp just like men (Supporters).
The idea of women in combat is not unusual anymore. They should be able to hold combat positions beacause although physical strength matters, the military still needs the intelligence that women can bring. Also, banning women from the combat hurts their military careers. Although women account for only ten percent of the enlisted personnel (Time, 8/21/95/ Pg. 31), they are still a major part in the armed forces. Their performance recently has generated support from Congress and the public for enhancing the role of females in the military.
This is because women have proved themselves to be of equal capability as men, and they have already been serving in combat positions alongside men, though not legally. Fortunately, the Pentagon was able to see this and on December 3, 2015 Secretary of Defense Ashton B. Carter announced that they would be officially allowing women to serve in all combat positions in the U.S. armed forces. This change in military policy will allow more representation for women in the armed forces but it also represents a major leap towards gender equality, further closing the gap between men and
Now women are allowed to be in armed forces as we know with the most recent news of the first women to graduate from ranger class, Capt. Kristen Griest and 1st Lt. Shaye Haver however, women are not allowed on front line duty and why is that? Many people say that women are not emotionally or physically capable. Few bigger reasons is that they believe that the male soldiers will do foolish things for our women, the other is that they will pamper with the mission's effectiveness. There has been a lot of conflict with if women are as effective as men and or as useful.
Education for citizens is the best solution to help fight against women in combat because most people are unaware of women’s inabilities, the current situation, and the possible disadvantages.
Women in active combat are a very controversial topic with valid points at both sides, but fundamentally, there are just some facts that can’t be ignored. Men and women are not created equal. Now that’s not saying their social status isn’t equal; however, men and women are just not built the same physically. Through evolution men have become more physically inclined to hunt, fight and protect all the properties required for active combat; on the other hand women have evolved to mother children and go through pregnancy with their fragile frames (Nine Fundamental Pros). The point that is trying to be made here is that women weren’t made to see action in the military, so why go against nature to be something evolution did not intend to occur?
Anyone can be in combat if they wanted. But others say they are too weak and get blown up and aimed at and shot far too much. Still, women have the right to be in combat, and also, many women have been in the army for many years, and have done great
I am in favor of equality for women, just not when it comes to women in combat. There have been women in society doing heroic things since the Revolutionary war. There have been brave women in war posing as men so they could fight. There are a select few women who could handle war and combat. The negative aspects of women in combat outweigh the positive. Women should not participate in military combat. However they may join the military and served in traditional roles such as nurses and office staff. The difference between men and women is women are physically weaker, they have vital personal needs, and they attract male troops.
Imagine this: The year is 2016 and today is super bowl Sunday in San Francisco. This game is said to be the first in U.S. and in world history where women are allowed to play without restrictions in the National Football League. We have the 49ers playing against the Raiders. The raiders recently signed their new female quarterback, Sophia Smith, who will be challenged by the new 49er female left-tackle, Martha Owens. These two females are among many females who have recently tried out and made the cut in professional football, and there are many more females in other professional sports, like Norma Rowling’s, who is an NBA forward for the Lakers, as well as (Ultimate Fighting Championship) UFC champion Maria Lopez, who fights men and women equally in the octagon, and who has beaten all of her male challengers in order to be named “champion of the cage.”
There is military in our society. Nowadays, only men is going to military, and many people think it is not fair. Because men is going to military, and having death problems. Like you have to risk your life when you are going to military. Well, I believe women shouldn’t go to the military. Because first, man and woman don’t share the same physical ability. Secondly, Women can be mentally fragile compared to men. Lastly, someone has to take care of children and the housework.
