The decision to allow women into all parts of the military was widely hailed as a victory for female equality. But TV viewers are likely to be shocked tonight when they see a woman being badly beaten by a male contestant on Channel 4's SAS: Who Dares Wins. The incident will raise further questions about how appropriate it is to recruit women alongside men as frontline soldiers. Midwife Louise Gabbitas, 29, is one of the first women to appear on the C4 show, which puts contestants through SAS-style training.

She deliberately chooses to fight 27-year-old student Nathaniel rather than take on another woman in the ring.

While the pair, wearing protective headgear, square up to each other, the chief instructor on the show, former Special Forces sniper Ant Middleton, tells them: 'The best form of defence is attack. Is that understood?'

Nathaniel does not hold back, smashing Miss Gabbitas in the face several times before landing hard blows to her head until she falls down.

The episode leaves her dishevelled, bruised and teary, prompting Middleton to tell the recruits: 'The enemy doesn't care what gender, race or religion you are.'

She has huge respect from me, wanting to take on a man in the fight here. Takes huge guts and character.

I watched this. What was interesting was the Muslim guy who threw in the towel because he didn't want to share a toilet with the women.

Just watched the first episode online

Was so impressed by contestant number 1. Even though on day two she struggled so much. Its really opening up my eyes to the mentral strain this has on women, but how I believe they can and will cope with this.

Based on what she has been through, to not only not be believed, through sexual assualt, but determined to continued?

Shows to me, she has again guts and character

I love how also the intrsucters are also rooting for her and I am too. I hope she succeeds
