Women may have to join military draft under potential proposal

Public service option in the U.S. is being evaluated by the National Commission on Military, National and Public Service to determine if women should be included in military drafts or if involuntary drafts should just be discarded altogether.

Members of the commission are still weighing out the options before making any recommendations in a report that isn’t due to go before the White House and Congress until March 2020, Task & Purpose reported.

Besides determining how to handle future military drafts and women’s role in them, the commission said in their interim report released on Jan. 23, 2019 that many changes are being considered in the near future, according to the Military Times.
