Abstract:

This research paper demonstrates why Americas exclusionary policies on women in combat are out of touch with todays ideology and justifies why these policies must be changed. It provides a history of women in the military and a history of the policies and regulations that have governed military women since the Revolutionary War. The paper analyzes arguments both for and against women in combat. It also includes opinions from key strategic leaders, as well as opinions from women who have served in combat. The paper concludes with the recommendation to eliminate the policy barriers and to allow women to serve in combat.
