And as befits the first country that gave women the vote, I believe NZ's armed forces allow women to serve without restriction?

I actually, strangely, know that answer.  And it is indeed true.  Women in the NZ forces are allowed to strike for any job, including special forces.

I don't find it strange that the international marsupial of mystery has an extensive knowledge of the New Zealand armed forces or women.

And for a purely curious statistical standpoint, what's the percentage of women actually being in the NZ special forces?

As far as I know, no women have successfully entered the NZ special forces.  However, they are able to and as far as I know, aren't 'targeted' to make sure they fail.  They DO however server in armored divisions. (That's actually how I know. lol)

Oddly enough, the NZ SAS (our only proper 'special' force) is a pretty secretive organisation. The public aren't allowed to know who serves, with one exception. It's possible there are female members, but we won't find out till they retire, or receive a noteworthy award (like Apiata).

NZ also elected the first openly transgender Member of Parliament. She wasn't standing in a traditionally liberal electorate, but a historically conservative one.
