Description
Description: This article addresses the famous and known women from around the world that were apart of and made their mark in the armed forces.

Summary
Summary: There are many debates as to whether or not women in the armed forces are more 'harmful' rather than helpful in the armed forces. There were many successful women from around the world that had proven that women were just as capable completing a job or mission given by their superiors. There are a few factors that are debatable as far as why having women in the armed forces could be promlematic.

Excerpt
Excerpt: Then, in the Great War, there was Maria Bochkareva’s somewhat tackily named “Women’s Battalion of Death.” There were other Russian all female formations, but that was probably the only one of note. Discipline was fierce, with roughly 85 percent attrition before ever leaving for the front. Fierce discipline? I recall reading one anecdote in which Bochkareva supposedly came upon one of her women making the beast with two backs with a male soldier from a nearby regiment. She pinned the two of them to the ground. Bodily. With a bayoneted rifle. In any case, Bochkareva’s battalion did go to the front, did participate in combat, briefly, and apparently did do reasonably well.
