Some people think women should be allowed to join the army, the navy and the air force just like men. To what extent do you agree or disagree? Give reasons for your answer. Write at least 250 words.
Despite having constitutional rights of equality, women are still questioned for multifarious things they do. Working for armed forces by women has become a contentious issue, although I firmly believe they should be allowed to do such jobs.
To commence with the reasons behind my opinion, firstly and most prominently, women should do jobs in the defence sector as they have already proven their calibre in these fields. Women are the embodiment of courage and determination, and they know to work with strength. They are also trained harshly, just like men before their joining, therefore doubting their physical power is certainly a folly. The incident of a surgical air strike in 2019 by Indians against Pakistan in response to the Pulwama attack is the perfect epitome of this situation, where along with 11 male fighter pilots, one female pilot successfully accomplished the mission. Henceforth, discouraging them from doing these jobs is absolutely unjustified.
Apart from this, women are also citizens of the country. They also may possess an equal feeling of patriotism for theirs. Nation, so depriving them of serving for their country is definitely an unfair decision. Moreover, women in these troops act as role models for many others. They become an inspiration for those who lack the feeling of love for the nation. The female IPS officer, Kiran Bedi, has motivated many women to follow their dreams. Owing to this, it can be said that they deserve to be in military jobs.
To conclude, it is irrefutable that females’ physical strength can not be compared to that of males. However, they should be given a chance to work for their country.
