Should Women Be on the Front Lines?

Thursday, February 18, 2010

With the recent announcement that the administration may repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," there has been much talk about issues of equality when it comes to the military. But another another group is also struggling for equal military opportunities: women. The current policy held by the Department of Defense does not allow women in ground units where they might engage in direct combat.

We're joined by Nuala McGovern, host of the BBC's "World Have Your Say," which recently asked listeners around the world about the issue of women in combat.
