Panel to recommend making women register for the draft | Military Times

The bipartisan National Commission on Military, National, and Public Service has spent the last two years investigating the Selective Service System. They are now recommending that women between the ages of 18 and 25 be required to register for the draft like men are. The recommendation has been met with mixed opinions and has never been passed by Congress in the past. The idea has picked up traction with some womenā€™s rights groups and is often met with disdain by more conservative sectors. Issues previously encountered include concerns over the viability to maintain the selective service in this case, as well as exceptions for women based on numerous factors such as children and traditional household roles.
