Description

Double standards in the military were created because, when tested, women proved that they could not consistently achieve men’s standards, but in January 2016, all military occupations and positions opened to women, without exception. There is a lot of controversy between men and women when it comes to jobs in the military. There are many situations where one gender is more efficient than the other in certain jobs in the military. According to CNN “Health care was the top field for female officers, at 39%. They made up nearly 28% of administrative officers, 19% of intelligence officers and 18% of supply officers.”. Women are often limited to what they can do based on their physical ability. Women have been given more privileges recently, but still not as much as a man. There should be no discrimination and each person should be individually accessed based on his and her capabilities.
