British Army Opposes Lifting Ban on Women Because They Can’t Apply Standards?

Posted: July 11, 2016 by Nazim in Enforcement, Equal Protection

According to the Independent, the British SAS opposes allowing women in combat because they would make the army less effective. He cites a US Marine Corps study to back this up, despite the fact that the US Marine Corps allows women in combat, as long as they meet the standard. And, while not many can, apparently some can. And that’s reason enough.

One test involved in joining the infantry is completing an eight-mile march in less than two hours, while carrying 25 kg. The army’s research suggests less than 5 per cent of 7,000 female recruits would currently pass the physical tests.
