Earlier this week, the Senate Armed Services Committee voted to require young women to register with Selective Service for the draft should one be officially reinstated. 

Slipped into the Senate’s version of the fiscal 2025 National Defense Authorization Act is an amendment to the Military Selective Service Act that would require women between the ages of 18 and 26 to register for the draft.  

That should come as no surprise, however. Military recruitment under the Biden administration continues to focus more on woke ideology than the call to serve, preferring vaccination status over tactical capabilities and diversity, equity, and inclusion requirements over physical conditioning. 

It’s no wonder the U.S. military missed its 2023 recruitment goals by more than 41,000 people.  

Still, the question remains: Should women be required to register with Selective Service? 

As it stands, there are two version of the bill. Last week, the House passed a version that does not include the controversial “Draft Our Daughters” amendment, while the Senate committee’s does. Ultimately, both chambers will need to come to an agreement on whether or not the amendment, which has failed in the past, is to be included.

That raises the question: Is this really what’s in America’s best interest when it comes to national security? 

The U.S. inducted the last man into the military using the Selective Service System in 1973—shortly after President Joe Biden first came onto the political scene as a senator. 

Thousands of women already serve in the U.S. armed forces. That should be celebrated and focused on to create more opportunities for them in the military, but should mandatory Selective Service registration be a part of that?

We discuss that on this week’s edition of the “Problematic Women” podcast. We also explore how K-12 school indoctrination is sabotaging the U.S. economy. Plus: Biden’s Department of Education has undermined women’s rights with its latest move against Title IX, just in time for Women’s Sports Week. And as always, we’ll crown our “Problematic Woman of the Week.”
