Vara calls on MOD to do more to promote the fact that all military posts are now open to women

18th February 2019

Shailesh Vara welcomes the MOD announcement that all posts in the military are now open to women and calls for more publicity to ensure that women and girls are aware.

The MOD’s announcement that all posts in the military would be open to women was certainly welcome. Will the Minister kindly inform the House what specific measures are being taken to ensure that women and girls in school are made well aware that there are no no-go areas for them in the military?

I refer my hon. Friend to the Royal Air Force advert that aired this week, which almost exclusively featured women, as a clear demonstration that not a single role in the RAF, or, now, in the other services, is not open to them
