Op ponents argue that women should not be allowed in combat roles because they are not subject to the same physical training standard as men, and women do not possess the physical strength to be effective in combat roles. Based on these assumptions, opponen ts's claim that women are unable to enhance their units and this ineffectiveness endangers national security. Furthermore, opponents argue that the public is not ready to accept women in combat and if women were allowed, it would promote the idea that vi olence against women is acceptable. However the overall issue of allowing women into combat roles should be based on equality. If women in the Military meet the same standards as men, they should be treated equally and provided the same opportunities as men to serve in combat roles (Janofsky A10).
The Problem The problem with the United States Armed Forces is that women are not allowed in combat. Not including women in the combat policy will not strengthen the Armed Forces but will weaken them. Women in the combat are a controversial topic. During the several wars, women were used in a many capacities, including nursing, spying, supplying and maintaining camps, as well as the occasional combat activity as necessary. The controversy of today has a lot to do with the role of women in combat, and how their presence will impact male soldiers.
Military studies are relevant to women's history, because they serve to illuminate the extremely demanding conditions under which women have successfully served in, or in support of the US Armed Forces. An improved understanding of this facet of history serves to inform the contemporary debate over women in the military and provides a useful field of study for women seeking to enter the profession of arms. Throughout history woman have fought for many rights, because they felt as though they should be held as the same equal as their male counterparts.

Woman in the military has been a hot topic for a very long time and still reigns true today.

The test the Marines did proved that women have a harder time shooting straight than men do. Being in the military and knowing how and being able to shoot straight is very important.

Out of the ten leading speaking roles, only three are female, while the rest of the minor speaking roles are also predominantly male. Let’s take another movie, Pacific Rim, into consideration. The director, Guillermo del Toro, is also male. Only three women speak in the movie, compared to the numerous amount of male actors. In fact, those three women are the only ones named out of the fifty-six actors that appear in the ending sequence.
Yet there is still discrimination on the most basic topic; women and men equality. Although women are achieving the same standards as men and having the same training; the military is holding women back for no reason.
