Women in Combat Since the birth of our country when they had basically no rights women have been fighting for equality The latest battle that women have engaged in is their right to participate in ground combat in the army and the marines In recently written articles Suzanne Fields and Lou Morano say that it is absurd to allow women to fight They concede that there may be women who are qualified to fight but observe that there are just too many down sides to granting women a right to fight On the other side of the spectrum James Dubik Richard Lane and Jay Wurts argue that women should be able to fight in ground combat Each side has a valid argument but on the whole there are more points against women fighting in ground combat then there are for it The first point against a womens right to fight is simply that men are physically superior to women Feilds states Women are held to differentie lower physical standards in training and the arent expected to do the same heavy lifting as men because they cant Women lack the upper body strengthFields 2 By an overwhelming popular opinion men fight better that women do All other things being equal a fight between men and women would be as equally unfair as a fight between an eighty year old and a twenty-five year old A society that puts women into combat at the expense of fielding an equal number of men will without a doubt lose its wars Morano 6 Others argue that this point is completely false They protest that for the most part men are stronger than women but that there are women who are qualified to fight in the infantry They also contend that if the standards were equal for both men and women then there would be no reason to keep a qualified female off the field
