Draft Women?

The Seattle Post-Intelligencer reported May 1 that just before the Iraq war, the then-acting director of the Selective Service sent a proposal to the Pentagon suggesting that women should be registered as well as men.

Said the Selective Service’s February 2003 proposal: “In line with today’s needs, the Selective Service System’s structure, programs and activities should be re-engineered toward maintaining a national inventory of American men and, for the first time, women, ages 18 through 34 . . . .” According to the Post-Intelligencer, the agency conceded it would need “to market the concept” of a female draft to Congress.
