in many wars WWI, WWII,

participate in minor roles. Soviet women who
served during the wars began as drivers, nurses, or other minor roles. They were also trained to use a gun
for protection or battle,
As a result this meant
double duty for women. 2. It is argued that women are not physically or mentally strong to be in combat. Also, that it would be disturbing to bring back from the war zone women in body bags. 2 female fighter Aces Women have been captured, injured and killed
in combat, and they have also received
recognition for helping and saving lives

fought in wars, not just in support roles but also
in combat roles. Many volunteered and risked their
lives to protect their country. It has been argued that women are not physically or mentally
strong to be in active combat. Also, that a woman serving in
direct combat will hamper mission effectiveness by hurting
unit morale and cohesion. Despite these arguments, women all over the
world have fought, and will keep fighting for
their countries. Leaving all types of restrictions to the side,
women have continued to persevere to fight
in direct combat.
