But things will change. Defense Secretary Philip Hammond said Thursday the army should be open “to all who can meet the standards required.” That means women will be allowed to serve in front-line army. It will not be expected however an immediate review of the policy barring female troops. Military experts and commentators predict 2018 as the moment of decision. This decision is based under EU equality laws and was preceded by similar decisions in other countries. The US military took decision and prepares to allow women to serve on the front line. In Canada men and women are treated fully equally in all parts of the armed forces. From Australia to France, Germany to South Africa and Israel, women are allowed to give their life on the first line combats. The argument is that in the actual world anybody can be in danger anywhere.
