Countries that allowed women to fight and kill (history in 19 photos)

Since the Pentagon is trying to determine for itself exactly how it will integrate women into military specialties, formerly closed for them, including infantry and artillery units, senior military officials are actively studying the experience of other armies in the world that have already sent women into battle.


The final analysis includes the experience of Australia, Canada and other countries with which the US military served side by side in Iraq and Afghanistan. Some countries had “from three to ten years to complete this process, to integrate women into the combat process,” said a senior Pentagon officer.

There are about a dozen countries that have opened "closed combat roles" for women. These roles are defined in a study by the British Ministry of Defense against 2010 of the year as those that include "entering into battle with the enemy on the ground ... under enemy fire and with a high probability of physical contact with the enemy forces".

In many parts of the world, immediately after its inception, the process of integrating women into combat units quickly moved forward. For example, although in Poland, women were not even accepted to military academies before 1999, in the country in 2004, a law was passed obliging women with secondary medical and veterinary education to register and get registered with the military.

Of the dozens of countries that allowed women to be part of combat units, the following describes the countries with the least restrictions on what women can do in military service.



Australia

Like the United States, this country has very recently removed all barriers for women who want to serve in advanced units, provided that their physical form meets the requirements. In 2011, the Australian Minister of Defense announced that the last seven percent of posts closed to women, including special troops, infantry and artillery, would be open to them.

This process will take place according to a carefully developed five-year plan, largely due to the succession of sex scandals in military units. At one time, compared with any other non-NATO country, Australia had the largest contingent in Afghanistan; women now make up about 10 percent of all Australian deployed armed forces.



Canada

In 1989, Canada opened all combat specialties for women with the exception of submarines. However, in 2000, women were given the green light and service on submarines. Three years later, the first woman was appointed captain of a Canadian warship, and another woman became the first deputy commander of a combat unit.

Approximately 15 percent of the Canadian Armed Forces are currently women, while two percent serve in women's combat units. In 2006, Canada lost its first female soldier, an advanced artillery observer, in a battle with the Taliban forces.



Denmark. In the photo below, Danish princess Mary is on the teachings of the National Guard in 2008

Since 1988, Denmark has pursued a policy of “total entry”, which began immediately following the results of the “battle tests” conducted in 1985, which explored women's ability to fight on the front lines. According to the Danish Ministry of Defense, "the study showed that women showed themselves in ground combat missions just like men." Although all military posts are open to women, the requirements for physical training still prevent them from joining the special operations forces of this country.



France

Women make up almost one-fifth of the French military and can hold all positions with the exception of service on submarines and in the gendarmerie to combat riots. Although they are allowed to serve in the line infantry, most do not choose service in it. As a result, women make up the total 1,7 percent of these units.



Germany

In 2001, Germany allowed women to serve in combat units, dramatically increasing the manning of such units with representatives of the "weaker sex". The number of women in the German army is currently three times more than in 2001. At 2009, around 800, female military personnel served in combat units.



New Zealand

After adopting the relevant law in New Zealand in 2001, women were allowed to serve in all combat units, including infantry, armored troops, and artillery. After 4, the report said that the law helped to improve the social atmosphere in society regarding “women were rated equally with men,” but integrating women into battle formations “requires deliberate and concerted efforts.” The report of the British Ministry of Defense concluded that there are "variable successes in recruiting and recruiting women into these areas."



Norway

In 1985, Norway became the first NATO country to allow women to serve in all combat positions, including submarines. Norwegian women are also subject to appeal in the event of general mobilization. “A small number of women serving in infantry and reconnaissance do a great job in the Norwegian army,” said a Norwegian officer who served 25 for years in infantry.

“Must clarify. You must meet physical standards, because this job requires good health, ”added the Norwegian who served in the Norwegian contingent in Afghanistan. “This is not a very big problem, because those who go to the army know these standards, and if they want to serve really, they will train and maintain their physical form.”

In 1985, the Israeli army began to call on women for combat units, and by the year of 2009, women served in artillery, reconnaissance and anti-aircraft forces. In Israel, women are obliged, like men, to undergo compulsory military service, but they serve only two years, unlike men, who serve three years.

A 2002-2005 study on the integration of female soldiers into the Israeli army says that women often demonstrate “excellent military disciplines, they are well motivated and have excellent fighting qualities, but they still suffer from biased attitudes imaginary threat historical the identity of male warriors. "

        And why do you think such a policy? The deceased woman will not give birth to a child, will not continue the birth. This is another way to the extinction of peoples. In World War II, pregnant women were demobilized from the Red Army. The army has enough professions for women and without risk to life.

        Women in war have nothing to do except medicine, communications and the rear. The death of a woman in front of men strongly demoralizes the unit. And the requirements for women’s life are increased, you can’t always provide them in the field.

          Yes, how demoralizing. Not that the unit, the whole company can stand up, it is not necessary to personally see death - just know about its existence and see it live a couple of times.
          In linear contact parts, they are not needed.

    If men cannot serve, then they leave for women. So far, everything is fine with us in this respect (it has become now). But if a woman wants to serve the Motherland, then nothing will stop her, there are so many who want to. Yes, and you can marry a normal guy, and not for drunks and homeless people. There is a prospect, housing is guaranteed, salaries are excellent - why not serve something?
    And so, a joke of humor in the morning:

    We reduce the requirements for physical. preparation and voila, all fit. And then, in the event of a conflict, we remove ships and helmets from the duty, entire echelons of "suddenly" pregnant "soldiers" back. There is still experience in World War II, and there is no need to give single cases (on that scale and regiment a single case) of heroines.

          That is, the whole function of a woman in your opinion is to give birth? Well then, you need to minimize their ability to not extend the genus. To protect from studies, to forbid to drink, smoke and drive in cars independently (they will still be killed). What else could prevent the genus from extending? Damn, then the peasants should be prohibited from fighting, since in a war the number of dying civilians is usually about 50 percent of the total number of losses, no less. And this is a risk factor.

      Princess Olga at one time was extremely famously strange and one could say she knew a lot about sabotage, Maria Bochkareva was the commander of the female battalion, Catherine 2 also participated in resolving military issues as a sovereign, and it was she who was credited with the gains in the framework of the Russian-Turkish wars of that period. These names are by ear therefore I know about them, however I am more than sure that if you dig around more numbers will be found. By "troops" I meant much more general, that is, "military units"

      Here, in fact, a rather interesting point: We know enough about the men who fought and commanded, but for some reason it seems to be silent about women. To put it mildly, there is little information, and historians have to dig it out literally.

          So it turns out that Zhukov and Stalin and even Putin are also politicians. And in principle, the way it is. Only the fact that they are politicians does not detract from their contribution to the country's military affairs, the adoption of strategically important military decisions, as well as personal participation in the planning of military operations.

          Every woman is a hero; this is shame and shame for men.


          I do not see anything shameful and shameful in the personal inner strength of a warrior, regardless of his gender. A hero, he is always a hero, a fighter, he is always a fighter. It should be a shame to cowards who hid behind the backs of these fighters that men that women. And the country should know its heroes, so dig and dig it again, I won’t be surprised if specific state awards have not yet found their heroes. And without heroes, the new generation will not know anyone what to strive for or what to fear, and it will not penetrate patriotism.

        Here, in fact, a rather interesting point: We know enough about the men who fought and commanded, but for some reason it seems to be silent about women. To put it mildly, there is little information, and historians have to dig it out literally.

        Because there were very few of them, and even fewer of those about whom it became known as Durova, for example

    Princess Olga at one time was extremely famously strange and one could say she knew a lot about sabotage, Maria Bochkareva was the commander of the female battalion, Catherine 2 also participated in resolving military issues as a sovereign, and it was she who was credited with the gains in the framework of the Russian-Turkish wars of that period. These names are by ear therefore I know about them, however I am more than sure that if you dig around more numbers will be found. By "troops" I meant much more general, that is, "military units"

    So you did not bring a single piimer command unit. Bochkareva, has she commanded a lot? What Princess Olga is we talking about? Catherine was the Empress, as was Elizabeth, and apart from their nominal command as one of the guards regiments, military exploits were not noticed.
    In my opinion, in Russian history, the participation of women in hostilities is the exception rather than the rule. The same Durova had to commit a crime in order to fulfill her desire.

      And then a direct denial went. It turns out that Bochkareva didn’t command anyone and it turns out she didn’t have a battalion, you don’t know about the existence of Princess Olga, Catherine 2 didn’t decide anything according to historical documents and did not take any part in military conquests and did not give direct orders. Apparently for her there people who decided before that decided very badly, but "for some reason" this time they decided well. Actually, it’s extremely typical and uninteresting, an ordinary empty negation without arguments, except perhaps "because I said so." Thus, I feel that we will come to an agreement that Anastasia Alexandrovna Bisenyek didn’t command any partisans, Maria Ivanovna Dolina was not a deputy squadron commander, Zhigulenko, Evgenia Andreevna was not a flight commander, etc. etc. And in general there was nothing for them to give the hero of the Soviet Union to.

      feats behind them were not noticed.


      For Zhukov and Stalin, there were no feats either, for that they were commanders, not fighters.

      In my opinion, in Russian history, the participation of women in hostilities is the exception rather than the rule.


      The participation of women in large-scale military conflicts is an absolutely complete rule; no such conflict is known where they would not have participated. Protection of their land by women in non-modern times is generally a complete rule, then there was a total human deficit and the enemy did not spare anyone.

        Bochkareva is such a very controversial character.

    Pancake! Well, women should not fight! If a woman is already fighting, then the men could not cope with the role of defenders! I admit only medicine and communication, the first due to the fact that there are many more women doctors than men, and during the war the wounded flow and need to be treated, the second because of the perseverance and perseverance of the fair sex.

    Yes - that's what they need!

    The more masculine women - the more effeminate ... geyaras! The closer is their degeneration.

    Heavy male stresses, both physical and psychological, irreversibly deform a person and provoke hormonal changes.

    Similar injuries can be hidden. And then, this injured woman will give birth to a child and “imprints” her injuries on this small pliable creature, as on a matrix. And the child will grow up. And his injuries received from a crippled mother - too.

    When huge prints of suckers began to be found on sperm whales, a version of super-giant squids arose. But everything turned out to be simpler. A small young sperm whale hunted for just a big squid and got scars. Then the sperm whale grew and became large. And with it - his scars also grew.

    So - with the child. That is why, the "evil commies" had a program prescribed in ONE line: "Protection of motherhood and childhood."

    It is very difficult to get a healthy child from an unhealthy mother. And, any increased tension, and, especially, "the hardships and deprivations of army life" - objectively cripple a woman - the future mother.

    When a woman was kicked out of her family to work, many problems appeared: from feminism to child crime. But this, it will seem, is simply flowers, compared to what happens when women get used to consider themselves ... men! Slow bomb Countdown, already - gone ...

    War has no female face. They have nothing to do at the forefront. In the rear - quite.

    Denial, of course, no.
    You write about the "military units", that is, up to and including the battalion. So I ask you to give an example of commanding a battalion (except for the notorious Bochkareva) in the Russian army (until 1918). What Catherine did, as well as the other empresses, I, more or less in the know and governing the state, are more a political leadership, rather than military. I also know about the USSR, I also know about women's air regiments and the fact that the 587th BAP, commanded by Marina Raskova, I also know.

      Well, here I am, empty negation. It turns out that Catherine 2 did not command anyone, did not make direct orders, and in general other people did all this for her. Only this is not true by itself, she commanded and gave orders and so on. That is why a whole series of conquests of that time by historians is considered her personal merit.

      About Princess Olga, who, if you believe the historical documents directly commanded the fighters and the squad, she was planning revenge on the Drevlyans, you already certainly preferred to simply keep silent.

    In the photos there are only posers in the nude style. They do not reach ours.

    Girls and women in the army are sometimes (as I have observed more often) more disciplined and more responsible for the performance of official duties (of course, if we consider the level of units such as rear, communications) than men.

    the most beautiful and most pleasant externally in the presented photos are the representatives of Israel, which is not surprising, since there are many from the republics of the former USSR, which means there is a fraction of Slavic blood. And as you know, such combinations (southern + Slavs) give beautiful women
