’Lumpen’ Popular Among Girls

More girls are interested in doing Military Service or ’Lumpen’, as it is called in Swedish.

Of over 5000 young people who took Military Service last year, only 403 were girls.

This year thousands of girls have applied, with 5,200 found to be fit enough and have good enough grades to take part.

The National Service Administration usually sends out forms to all 17-year-old boys. But this year the girls were on the mailing list too, as part of an initiative to double the number of girls involved.
