There are female soldiers all over the world making their contribution just as their male counterparts are. Take a look at these inspiring army women.
Another country where women are trained in the same ways as the men is in the Irish army. Female soldiers are able to join into any role including any Special Forces and combat roles, and this is something they have been able to do since 1979. “If you come into the Defense Forces with the right motivation and work ethic – that you want to work hard and do well at your job – you will be treated with as much respect as any of the guys here,” says Lieut Cdr Elaine Moloney who is an engineering officer in the Irish Army.
