Kuwaiti women will soon be allowed to join national military services

KUWAIT CITY, Oct 15: For the first time, Kuwait has decided to allow Kuwaiti women to join the country’s national military services. However, initially they will serve in the medical and administrative services only.

Deputy Prime Minister and Defence Minister Hamad Jaber will issue a decree allowing the women’s military enlisting, according to reports. The order is expected to be released in a couple of days.

“The time has come for Kuwaiti women to be given the opportunity to enter the Kuwaiti military side by side with their brothers," the Minister said. He expressed confidence in women’s “capabilities... and their ability to endure hardship”.

“The Kuwaiti women will be accepted at a course for officers and non- commissioned officers to qualify them to work alongside their male country fellows in the Kuwaiti army,” Gulf News quoted an official as saying.

The first batch of women in the military selection will have 100 to 150 women recruits.

In 2009, women were allowed to serve in police. In 2018, Kuwait enforced a law on compulsory military service for males at the age of 18.

Kuwaiti women earned the right to vote in 2005 and have been in the Cabinet as well as parliament.

"My generation saw Gulf women rising from ground zero to remarkably high levels of education, accomplishment and wealth," wrote Saadia Mufarreh, a Kuwaiti journalist and poet, in Al Jazeera.

She said, "Empowerment of women has been achieved at different levels in the Gulf countries. Much progress has been made in the area over the past two decades. The movement for women’s rights, which has been joined by men as well, has sought relentlessly to empower women and to secure the same opportunities in education, work and other aspects of public life afforded to men in the region."
