Final Topic

For my final topic, I decided to write about women being allowed to fight in combat. Looking up this particular topic, there have been back and forth for years on whether or not it should be acceptable. Some would say that women are fully capable of becoming troops because thatís what they signed up for. But others would say women are not physically capable of being on the front lines. For me, I would have to pick the side that is for women being on the front lines. If they have to go through the same amount of training to get into the military, then itís only fair they get an opportunity to stand on the front line. Just like men sign up to fight for their country, so do women. But not allowing them to actually fight for their country is a case of showing discrimination. So not treating them equal all because of their sex is really wrong and a change has to come soon. Not only would this stop discrimination, but financially it will open thousands of jobs for women in the armed forces. Even now a lot of people sign up to join the military because they want to have more income. Just think of all the women will have a great opportunity to provide for their families or just for themselves. It would be very beneficial in many ways for females and for the armed forces. Now for my resources I found it very helpful by using the ECU library database. It was a really good source on the issues and controversy tab that really touched on good information. Also looking up under the search tab for research, it shoes book and articles dealing with womenís rights and equality. Just with that it is also similar to what Title IX talks about with the equality. Just looking that up, I know itís going to be a good amount of information to support my claim. Also I found a couple military sights with their thoughts and opinions on giving women an equal chance with being on the front line.
