    Every year several thousand women enlist in the armed forces of the member states of the European Union (EU). Women have been working in many of these forces for decades as nurses, musicians, and cooks. More recently, they also started working as tank drives, bomber pilots, and submarine commanders. Generally there is a Communitywide tendency to open more and more military occupations to females. Nevertheless, women remain excluded from several areas of frontline activity. Moreover, they are not subject to conscription. The degree of exclusion varies considerably from member state to member state.
