The female guerilla fighters of the PKK | Middle East Eye

The news a month or so ago was about the 2 female Ranger trainees that made ot to the end and graduated….allowing them to proudly wear the Ranger tab on the uniform……

Even though these young ladies made it through the grueling Ranger process they will still NOT be allowed in combat……women have a way to go before the military is willing to allow them to fight alongside the men……

But across the world there are women fighting and dying alongside men in various conflicts……

If the media wants to celebrate women and their abilities in the military then may I suggest that they look NO further than the women fighting with the Kurds in the Middle East……

MEE meets female Kurdish Workers Party fighters in the mountains of Iraqi Kurdistan – and finds a diverse group united by a vision of freedom

Women are more than capable of handling armed conflict and performing their duties under pressure….then why be so Victorian in thought……let women prove themselves!
