Feel a draft gals?

Senate passes defense policy bill that includes among its many Pentagon reforms a provision requiring women to register for the draft.
The Senate approved the National Defense Authorization Act 85-13, but some Republicans voted against it because it contained the requirement to register women with the Selective Service System. The proposal was not considered on the Senate floor, since it was included in the bill that emerged from the Armed Services Committee.
