Girls in the Military

For many years, girls were not allowed into the military. The stance that the military had on women enrolling into their armed services was well known as a negative one. During such times as World War I, World War II, India, many women in were not allowed into the military and instead were expected to work at the textile factories and other industries to help benefit their family as well as any sort of military textiles and supplies that were needed. Thanks to those who sought and flocked to enact girls into the military, there are now women who served proud for our country. There are many women and young girls that enlist into the military everyday. Their reasoning is for enlisting into the military are as wide and as different as those who are there. Many women enlist into various branches of the military as a result of having been in school activities that word created around military functions, the most common organization being ROTC. Is often during high school that many women find that they have a great interest in the military. Other women may find that they enroll in the military because they want to serve their country while there are those who may enlist in the military to further their college education. The belief that women cannot to do a man’s job is in large misconception. As a matter of fact there are many women that can do a job just as well if not better than many of their male comrades in their troops. There are also gray advancements for Wayne and within the military. There are women better high-ranking officers and have a large amount of soldiers under them. Such said women are given high regards in the military by their peers and those of the society alike. Giving women in the opportunity to enroll in the military and defend our country has been sent to be credited to the fact that there were not enough men to serve in the military. This statement is greatly false, as it was the fact that women sought the quality to also serve with her fellow man in defending the United States. A lot can be said about those women that serve in the military. Not only by the strong and independent women that they have truly set the pathways for other women to follow in their footsteps with her own personal military careers.

Women in the military have a history that extends over 400 years into the past, throughout a large number of cultures and nations. Women have played many roles in the military, from ancient warrior women, to the women currently serving in conflicts, even though the vast majority of all combatants have been men in every culture.

Even though women serving in the military has often been controversial, relatively few women in history have fought alongside men. In the American Civil War, there were a few women who cross-dressed as men in order to fight. Fighting on the battle front as men was not the only way women involved themselves in war. Some women braved the battlefront as nurses and aides.

Despite various, though limited, roles in the armies of past societies, the role of women in the military, particularly in combat, is controversial and it is only recently that women have begun to be given a more prominent role in contemporary armed forces. As increasing numbers of countries begin to expand the role of women in their militaries, the debate continues.

From the beginning of the 1970s, most Western armies began to admit women to serve active duty.[2] Only some of them permit women to fill active combat roles, these are: New Zealand, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Italy, Germany, Norway, Israel, Serbia, Sweden and Switzerland. In 2011 and 2012, the U.S. Defense Department began looking at loosening its near-universal ban on women serving in direct positions of combat, including ground combat, as opposed to other prominent but non-combat positions (for example, two women second lieutenants were allowed to try, but did not successfully complete, the grueling U.S. Marine Corps Infantry Officer Course).[3] In 2013, the United States Armed Forces overturned a 1994 rule banning women from serving in certain combat positions, potentially clearing the way for the presence of women in front-line units and elite commando teams.[4]

Women in the Israeli Defense Forces are female soldiers who serve in the Israel Defense Forces. Israel is the only country in the world with a mandatory military service requirement for women.[1][2][3] Women have taken part in Israel’s military before and since the founding of the state in 1948,[4][5] with women currently comprising 33% of all IDF soldiers and 51% of its officers,[6] fulfilling various roles within the Ground, Navy and Air Forces. The 2000 Equality amendment to the Military Service law states that "The right of women to serve in any role in the IDF is equal to the right of men."[3] As of now, 88% to 92%[7] of all roles in the IDF are open to female candidates, while women can be found in 69% of all positions.[1]

Formerly women conscripts served in the Women's Army Corps, commonly known by its Hebrew acronym, Chen. After a five-week period of basic training they served as clerks, drivers, welfare workers, nurses, radio operators, flight controllers, ordnance personnel, and course instructors.[8]
