I've seen many mixed opinions on this and want to see what most people think. If you heard that females would soon be required to sign up for the draft, would you be for it or against it? Give all your reasons why.
I do know there are people who are against the idea of the draft in general but I'm excluding the removal of a draft altogether from this question. That's a whole other topic.

It depends on the severity of the war.
I mean, If it were a war between nations, And the male population had been decimated by war, and there was literally mostly females left to defend the country, then yes, i do believe women should be conscripted to defend the country until it capitulates.
Look at WW2 for an example, At the start of the war, The soviet union only conscripted men, then as the Germans plunged deep into Russia and were at the gates of Stalingrad / Moscow, The Russians conscripted women to defend as they needed the extra manpower, and women continued to fight for russia until the end of the war
But, If the war is far away, and plenty of men are available, they should not. If you send women to war, you are effectively destroying your ability to replace the men you are loosing in war. I know some think ''Oh, it dosent mater, it will take at least 18 years until that kid can fight anyway'', but. Look at the Afghan / Iraq war, Thats been going on for 15 years now. In 3 years, kids who were concieved at the start of the war will be ready to fight.
So, No, I do not think women should be put on the draft, Though, if the war wages onto the home country, then yes, they should be conscripted.2
