Women in Combat

A strange mix coming out of the ADF these days.  We have horribly dated expressions of disinterest in the wellbeing of female cadets a couple days ago, and now some pretty clear support for gender equality in service:

Major General Molan, who served as chief of operations to the Iraq multinational force in 2004-05, said he supported the opening up of all roles in the military to women if that was what society wanted.
“If society makes the decision to put women in combat, then we in the military will manage that and we'll do it,” he said.
Good stuff! Of course, it hasn't happened, but it is on the table.
