In the 21st century, gender equality is a prominent issue which is getting its due importance. The military has been primarily a masculine institution, where boys become men. The question arises as to why this is not applicable for women. Women’s struggle to enter the military is not about seeking special privileges; rather it is about being able to compete on the basis of gender. It is not about proving that women can do anything that a man can do but being judged as individuals by the same standards as men in any job for which they can qualify.

Women were (and are) kept out of armed forces because of the myth of biology, which gives the argument that women are supposed to be genetically programmed to nurture life and are physically and emotionally not strong enough for combat. Those who believe in this line of thought falsely argue that this division of labor has been biologically determined.

However, numerous  studies have shown this to be untrue. The stereotype blames the woman for her problems, thus avoiding a critique of the system which creates many of the circumstances she finds herself in. But if this is viewed honestly, women deserve more opportunities to join the military. 

Women must not be denied the honor of serving their country. Women should be given more vacancies in the military services. Together, we can make a difference by signing this petition to ensure that women are given equal opportunity to protect our country's national security.
