What about women? Think they would consider drafting us?

Why wouldn't they? Equal rights remember?

Obama to Put Women in Combat



YouTube Debate: Require Women to Register for the Draft?

Hillary says Yes, it's only fair, as do most on the panel




Absolutely. In fact, as the argument goes, it would be unfair to keep them away from the front line.

Women fought for equal rights, now they get to share the full range of male experiences

The precedent has been set in Israel, where both sexes have been required to serve in the military for decades

I hate war, but I have been following this topic for a decade, and I saw discussion to expand SSS to include women begin after 9/11, fwiw.


Selective Service eyes women's draft

The proposal would also require registration of critical skills

Some of the skill areas where the armed forces are facing "critical shortages" include linguists and computer specialists, the agency said. Americans would then be required to regularly update the agency on their skills until they reach age 35.

Here is an interesting discussion of the draft on Constitution.net, fwiw. Wouldn't it be interesting if the decision to require women to register for SSS came about as the result of a lawsuit by parents of a son?

The acceptance of women into the military in the late 20th century had largely dispelled any myth that women cannot serve as effective combat troops, though women are still restricted from holding some positions in the military.

In addition, other militaries, such as that of Israel, where women serve in all roles, further dispel this myth.

The change to add women to the draft will, however, only come about with a sea change in American perception and law.
