Congressman Zinke Votes To Ban Women From Draft, After Sponsoring Bill To Draft Women

Press Release

Location: Unknown

Congressman Ryan Zinke voted this week to ban women from the draft, after co-sponsoring legislation just three months ago requiring women sign up for selective service.

On Thursday, Congressman Zinke voted alongside 217 of his colleagues to ban women from registering for the selective service, should a draft go into effect.

In April, Congressman Zinke mocked the Department of Defense's decision to open all combat jobs to women by cosponsoring H.R. 4478, the Draft America's Daughter Act. The satirical bill would have required women to register for the draft. Congressman Zinke was flabbergasted after the bill passed committee with the support of veterans. Congressman Zinke voted against his own bill back in April and on Thursday voted to ban women from the draft.

"Congressman Zinke's childish behavior in the House is wasting time and insulting the qualified women who bravely serve this country," Superintendent of Public Instruction and U.S. House candidate Denise Juneau said. "Women can do anything a man can do, and it's insulting for Congressman Zinke to suggest otherwise."
