Let me start by saying that I am a pacifist. I believe, in the 21st Century we could find better ways to resolve conflict and not by killing each other.
That said, I believe if women are to be in the armed forces, they should have opportunity to take on any role that men now undertake. I don’t think an affirmative action strategy is necessary – it should be skills based, as it should be in all careers.
When we look at gender defined roles we open ourselves up to generalising, such as comments like “men are stronger “, “women are more emotional”, we are making a pre-judgement and are likely to be biased.
