This question has been asked for years within our culture. The one constant has been that American men have found it their job to “protect” our women, as much as possible, from the horrors and physical depravities of war. We have not acknowledged the thousands of nurses and women serving in other fields of value, who have served with distinction so close to the fronts as to be in artillery range.
Modern warfare does not require the physical power of the past. If the women’s movement has taught us anything it is that women want the same rights and are willing to accept the same responsibilities as their male counterparts.
The larger question is, “When is the human race, particularly the civilized world, going to find an alternative to war to overcome differences?”
