the female frontline.

Today brings with it the news that women’s rights to fight on the combat frontline, have been approved by the Federal Defense Minister, along with the Defence Cabinet. 

The Australian Defence Force has welcomed the change, explaining that 97% of army duties and roles will be open to females, with the remaining 7% being left out due to simple sex logistics.

This change also brings the end to the Australia’s Sex Discrimination Act, and is expected to abolish the remaining difference in roles, in the next five years.

The Force claims that future enrolments will be accepted – and judged – based upon psychological, physical and mental attributes, rather than sex itself.

It is a proud day for Australian women.
