A Big Step Towards Equality for Woman…In The Military.

Out-going Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta has lifted the ban on women serving in combat roles within the armed forces.

 

This is a sweeping and striking move towards gender equality. The significant impact of such a decision will have ramification far beyond the Department of Defense.

 

Within the military, access to combat roles will allow for more women to move up to the highest ranks. There have been female generals and admirals already. That is true. However, leadership roles in combat units is often a key towards advancement…particularly to the highest levels of the Pentagon.

 

Not everyone is a fan of this type of equality. I am and I am not sure if I can explain why. However, times are changing.

 

No worries, though. They will not be praying in General Conference. That would be crazy.
