This week our panelists are debating whether or not women should be allowed to fight in combat.

Most of our writers say yes, but not all agree.

This conversation comes about a week after the Pentagon decided to rescind its 1994 policy banning women in combat that kept them from holding about 230,000 combat positions in the military.

What's your stance on this issue? Should women be allowed to fight in combat?
