Given that the imposing of mandatory Selective Service registration on women is included in both versions of the NDAA and that the NDAA is considered “must-pass” legislation by congressional leadership, it looks like there is a clear and quick path toward including women in any future conscription. What can stop that from happening? Members of the House and Senate could vote on their legislative bodies’ floors to strip the respective women draft provisions from the NDAA. They could also refuse to approve legislation that includes such provisions.
