When it comes to the Australian military, women are now allowed to serve on the front lines alongside the men. These women, who must pass the same physical tests as the men, can now serve wherever they wish, including special forces. The ban preventing women from selecting their desired post will be lifted immediately, but it may take up to 5 years for women to reach the front lines.
"This is simply about putting into the front line those people who are best placed to do the job, irrespective of your sex," said one Australian military leader. "Once this is fully implemented there will be no restrictions. If a woman is fully capable of doing the entrance program for the Special Air Service or Commandos, they'll be in it."
Do you think American military will be next?
