I have a question and I am having a hard time finding the answer. I hope you don’t mind my asking here. I am doing some homework and really was hoping to have the right answer.

Are women required to serve in all areas of the military or perform all duties? I know that they are allowed to serve in all areas but I was not sure if it was a requirement as it is for men.

Thank you in advance.

I'm sure you have found your answer by now so I apologize about the late reply.

Women are forbidden to be in the infantry (on the front line). With that said women soldiers competing for the same job as male soldiers are required to perform all the same duties that the job requires however, they are given more time and in some cases less work. For example in BCT males had to run 2 miles in 17 minutes and 30 seconds whereas females had 18 minutes and 54 seconds. Males had to do more push up and sit ups than the female recruits.
