Why The Military Should Drop The Ban On Women In Combat Arms

Brian Wagner writes on how arguments against women in combat arms that are founded on opinion and not empirical data limit America's fighting strength.

“The complete abolition of the combat ban, with no exceptions granted to the services in 2016, will not mean that women must always be on the front lines. They must earn that right on an individual basis. But so long as they have the right to compete for every job, like they do in the civilian workforce, they will be living proof that the U.S. has recognized that segregating elements of the military by gender no longer makes sense.”
