Defense Secretary Sees No Reason to Segregate Military Training
U.S. Defense Secretary William Cohen said on February 26th that he saw no reason to segregate military training on the basis of sex. He said he was still open to comments regarding the issue, but that any changes must not cause women to lose any gains they have made in the military. After a series of sex scandals, some conservative legislators have asked for the segregation, saying that the co-ed training led to rape, sexual harassment and other types of abuses against women. Cohen commented after touring Lackland Air Force Base, "Based upon my observations here today, one would have to come up with some very compelling evidence why (training) should be handled differently."
