Just to throw my opinion into the ring, and muddy the waters a little, in a purely T2K scenario, it really doesn't matter one way other the other if the person holding the rifle is a man or a woman. As others have stated before, there are no front lines. Everyone needs to be able to fight.
Women may not be as physically capable as men (on average), which is why I support infantry, armour and artillery units being primarily made up of men. However, they are more than capable of filling out units and doing less strenuous roles such as driver, clerk, cook, QM, intelligence, signals, armourer, medic, etc. They'd still likely see combat on the modern (and T2K) battlefield, but they wouldn't be expected to fight on a daily basis like dedicated infantry, etc.
