When Will a Modern Military Shooter Let a Woman Lead the Charge?

Will we ever see a Call of Duty game with a female protagonist? Commenter Nameloi wonders if the modern military shooter genre will ever give females a starring role on the battlefield in today's Speak Up on Kotaku.

Will there ever be a modern military game with a prominent female character(s)?

This is something that I have pondered for some time now seeing how popular these games are I find it odd how they completely erase any sort of idea of women in the military.

I think having a woman as a lead character in one of these types of games could be interesting from a storytelling perspective.
