Rights and Issues of Sex

Rights and Issues of Sex

Compose a reflection of at least 400 words in which you explain what answer you believe Zinn, Stanton, Fern, Woolf, Barnett and Rivers, and Sommers would give to the following question:

Should the military have lifted its ban on women in combat or not?

In your essay, convey the answer that you feel each selected author would be most likely to give to the question based on what the author has to say in his or her reading. The author does not explicitly aIDress the question being asked; you will, therefore, have to understand each author well enough to predict accurately how he or she would be most likely to respond to the question. As you read the assigned texts, you should keep the question in mind, which, I hope, will help you determine what is most important in the reading and what you can merely skim.
