...women in warfare is not extraordinary anymore. There is a growing position in the United s where, as women are obtaining more privileges given to them that were formerly restricted, women ought to be given everything that is presented to men. This appears to be becoming very accurate inside the military, where much opinion is that women must be given the chance to serve in fighting arms situations. Women should be capable to hold combat sites because, even though physical strength is a significant concern, the military still requires the cleverness that women can produce. By means of banning women from warfare also damages their military professions. Even if women merely accounts... The thought of women...

...Women in Combat: An Objective Analysis of Costs That the issue of women in combat is contentious is hardly relevant. What is relevant, as a wealth of empirical data suggests, is the fact that women seem to suffer disproportionately when exposed to combat directly and indirectly. This disproportionate suffering occurs at multiple stages; it occurs at basic combat training, it occurs during deployments, and it occurs after the women have been discharged from the military. The data to be presented suggests nothing which is isolated or an aberration; quite the contrary, the data suggests rather forcefully and rather comprehensively that women exposed to combat both directly... and indirectly...

Also, Joan of arc is a famous example. In the WWII(second world war), hundreds of thousands of German and British women soldiers served in combat roles but only in anti-aircraft units.
