Female Norwegian soldier on patroll in Afghanistan
With the decision made by the Norwegian Labour Party this weekend, to impose conscription for females, NATO member Norway joins a small club of countries. Mandatory draft for both males and females has up to now been found only in North Korea, Libya, Cuba, Chad, Benin, Tunisia, Malaysia, Israel Taiwan, and Eritrea. This makes Norway the first and only NATO country with female conscription
The Norwegian defence is known to be among the most technologically advanced in the world when it comes to equipment and training. Now The Norwegian draft will dramatically increase the number of potential soldiers in Russia’s wealthy neighbor-country.
