Posted on 26 July 2014

Mindef slowly easing pressure on Singaporean men, moving towards a fully female armed forces.


Saying that the changes to make the IPPT into a three-station walk in the park is one of the ways of easing pressure on Singaporean men to serve the country, Mindef said on July 26, 2014, that the next few enhancements to National Service policy will see Singapore training a fully-female armed forces to defend the country.

Supreme General of the Army, Jin Seow Onn, said: “After years of pressure for feminist organisation, Aware, we have no choice but to make things more equal.”

“The next phase of our policy is to remove men from active service so that Singapore will have a women-only armed forces.”

Supreme General Jin also said that changes to these recent IPPT to include sit-ups, push-ups and 2.4km run is to make the force more female-friendly.

The next step is to give out more CPF awards and more attractive maternity benefits for the women and their husbands, who would no longer need to serve NS or reservist, who just need to maintain active duty in the bedroom.
