Some people think that women should take part in the military or the police force, but others oppose to this idea. Which one do you agree with? Give your reasons and examples to support your idea. BY Hanalan2013 As the natural biological differences between women and men, the society has opened a door to push them into the gender-based roles which limit and influence their attitudes and behaviors. Thanks to the worldwide development of the gender- equality, many people hold a belief that women should be allowed to serve and have ominant positions in the police and military forces.
Whereas, others oppose this idea since they are afraid that the lack of physical strength and mental discipline will make women become incapable of fulfilling their tasks in the army. Personally, I completely agree that women should receive a chance to take part in this male dominated role and this essay will provide the reasons alongside the examples to support my opinion. Women love their countries and have the rights and esponsibilities to protect their nations when the wars break out like men.
For example, in the history of Vietnam War, women also fought alongside men as the combatants and do whatever Jobs they can to support the armed forces such as mending the wounds, giving comfort and fghting against the foreign enemies. They served as the intelligent agents or village patrol guards as well as learnt to lay traps and use weapons and thus women played a vital part in the struggle and independence victory of Vietnam. Living out the countrys ancient saying “When war comes, even women have to fght”, women become motivated, passionate and energetic to exert themselves for the sake of their own motherlands.
Furthermore, the abilities of women such as management skill, doing the detail-oriented Jobs and being flexible in multi-tasking are useful for the police forces. Since the police forces have to deal with multi-Jobs such as responding to emergency situations, promoting good community relations, protecting citizens, tracking criminals, monitoring uspicious situations, investigating crimes and recording facts for later reporting , they are required to be professional, well-managed and detail-oriented to fulfill their tasks.
In conclusion, contrary to the popular opinion, I believe that women are capable to do the same things as men and thus if they can handle childbirth, they can handle combat. People must comprehend that men and women should be valued equally and therefore, the glass ceiling as well as the unreasonable traditional social customs which lead to inequality should be shattered.
