News Does the bill proposing re-instituting the draft include the drafting of women?

    Just curious about the contents of the bill (or proposal, or whatever it's called) about re-instituting the draft and whether women and men would have an equal chance of being drafted under it's provisions.

    btw..The sponsor and all Co-sponsors are Democrats and it's expected to be brought up for vote in 2005.
