The historical role women played in the military is more or less irrelevant to the issue of whether they can serve effectively in combat roles in the modern military.

Theoretically, I guess there might be issues of physical capacity in certain roles but provided the military doesn't set double standards and selects on ability to do the job required, it shouldn't be a problem. I couldn't physically cope with the physical requirements of a lot of jobs in the military, which goes for a lot of men.
