Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen plans to increase the number of young people doing military service by extending conscription to women and increasing the time of service from 4 months to 11 months for both genders. She said the government wants ”full equality between the sexes.” At this time, Denmark aims to increase its conscripted troops by only 300 new soldiers.

The country is a member of the NATO alliance and a staunch supporter of Ukraine in its war against Russia’s invasion. Sweden recently joined NATO and Finland is set to join soon.

NATO’s Article 5 states that an armed attack against one or more of them in Europe or North America shall be considered an attack against them all and they shall assist the Party or Parties so attacked.


COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — Denmark wants to increase the number of young people doing military service by extending conscription to women and increasing the time of service from 4 months to 11 months for both genders, Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen said Wednesday.

“We do not rearm because we want war. We are rearming because we want to avoid it,” Frederiksen told a press conference. She said the government wants ”full equality between the sexes.”

Denmark currently has up to 9,000 professional troops on top of the 4,700 conscripts undergoing basic training, according to official figures. The government wants to increase the number of conscripts by 300 to reach a total of 5,000.

The country is a member of the NATO alliance and a staunch supporter of Ukraine in its war against Russia’s invasion.

Foreign Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen stressed that “Russia does not pose a threat to Denmark.”

“But we will not bring ourselves to a place where they could come to do that,” Løkke Rasmussen said.

All physically fit men over the age of 18 are called up for military service, which lasts roughly four months. However, because there are enough volunteers, there is a lottery system, meaning not all young men serve.

There are already too many warmongering women in politics. There is no place in armed forces for the gentler sex.

Funny! I despise ‘feminists’; they’re VILE! It’s about time that they got their due!!
And isn’t this one of the ‘northern EU’ countries where the male (aka NOT a MAN) stays home to ‘raise’ the kids, while the female (aka NOT a WOMAN) goes out to work??

Slavery comes to Denmark.
Good thing that we have the 13th amendment and nothing like that has ever happened here.
