Yes, and they should be integrated with the males
Yes, but keep their units seperate from male units
No, but women should be given some basic infantry skills beyond basic training
No, women should never serve in a role where they may encounter combat
If you're good enough, you're man enough.
I think it's pretty ridiculous that there is a ban on females being in a combat role. There are plenty of women that can shoot as well and better than I do and hey, that's what infantry does.

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
I think we can safely say that most women could not do the above because it is a fact that women are not built with the physical attributes of men which is they don't have the large muscle mass or the weight most men do. I have seen men that could not do the above physically. Some men are of small stature and not physically able do all that is required to be in the Army. I don't believe we can't assume all people have the same capabilities just because they are of one sex or the other.
