Lifting the Ban on Women in Combat

Jan 29, 2013

Wed. 1/30 11a: Last week, the US government announced that branches of the military will lift the ban on women in serving in direct combat infantries. 

We will have a conversation about what this development means to Native nations.

When it comes to women serving in this role, do you support or oppose the change? How does this change for female soldiers in the United States connect to traditional roles Native women played in times of war? Do you think female soldiers are equal to men or do you believe there are solid reasons why women shouldn’t serve in the direct combat infantry?
