So if gender equality is important, why don't women have to register for the draft?

The draft... I'm not a hardcore feminist, but I would have no problem registering for draft. If it meant my country needed me on such a level then I would. This is where feminism begins to backfire on men. Feminists realize that they're forgetting their goal of trying to earn equal respect from men--and there will always be things that women are required to do that men can't do, and vice versa.
The only reason why women didn't get drafted back in the world war days is cause they were needed to look after children and family-just to be mothers. No matter how capable a woman can be, she needs to look after her children. I'm not saying that women shouldn't be drafted at all-- but you're talking every eligible citizen in the country entering war. That would probably only happen in times of serious crisis.0
