Let Women Fight

by Machiavelli

The U.S. military’s ban on women in combat rests on false stereotypes and an outdated understanding of war. Irregular warfare has blurred the concept of frontlines, meaning that many female American soldiers already risk their lives in battle. And research suggests that women can meet the functional requirements of fighting and that mixed combat units are no less effective than all-male ones. It’s time to abandon a policy that does no good — and treats half of Americans as less than equal.
