Women serving in combat is a topic that rarely is talked about. In 2015, women gained rights in the United States to serve in all positions that were only open to men previously. As Ashton B. Carter stated, “They’ll be able to serve as Army Rangers, Green Berets, Navy Seal’s, Marine Corps Infantry, Air Force parajumpers, and everything that was previously open only to men”. Women are just as vital to the military as men are in both physical, and intellectual ways, and with more women alongside men in combat, the US military could benefit a lot from both genders being involved. In the end, a uniform needs a body to fill it, and whether it’s a male or a female’s, either one can complete the job if qualified. If a women wants to fight for her country, she should not need to earn the rights to do so.
