Abstract

Last month a government commission recommended that women register for selective service – the draft – for the first time. Alair Maclean writes that changes to who is able to serve in the armed forces is often an indication of wider social change. Including women in selective service registration, she argues, not only eliminates gender discrimination in the military, it also has the potential to further break down gender stereotypes more widely.
