[tps_header] 3) Australian Army[/tps_header]
At 3rd position in our list is Australian Army. Women have served in Australian armed forces since 1899. They were restricted to the Australian Army Nursing Service, until World War II. This role expanded in 1941–42 when the Royal Australian Navy (RAN), Australian Army and Royal Australian Air Force established female branches in which women took on a range of support roles.
Women were integrated into the services during the late 1970s and early 1980s and can now serve in most positions in the Australian Defence Force (ADF), including combat roles.
