Military women have contributed immensely both in the home-front and on the battlefield.
Take the late Nigerian Tolulope Oluwatoyin Sarah Arotile as an example.
Arotile was the first-ever female combat helicopter pilot in the Nigerian Air Force. She contributed significantly to combat operations against insecurity in the northern states of Nigeria before her death recently.
Military women have functioned in many aspects in their countries. Nearly all of them were volunteers, and 90 percent served as military nurses.
Though women also worked as physicians, air traffic controllers, intelligence officers, clerks and other positions in the Women’s Army Corps, Navy, Air Force and Marines and the Army Medical Specialist Corps.
According to the U.S. Defense Department in 2019, women now make up 20 percent of the Air Force, 19 percent of the Navy, 15 percent of the Army and almost 9 percent of the Marine Corps.
Women now make up approximately 10 percent of the current veteran population, the fastest-growing demographic.
Women can serve in most areas of the military including riot control. They have been allowed in submarines, including nuclear submarines.
Women are allowed to serve in combat infantry. In some nations, 10% of combat infantry are women.
Let’s celebrate our women.
