US Military Will Open All Combat Jobs to Women

Women will soon be allowed to serve in all combat roles in the United States military, Secretary of Defense Ash Carter announced today.

The military branches will have until January 1, 2016, to begin putting plans in place to open combat roles to female members of the military, and will have to begin implementing the plans by April 1, according to the report.

The decision follows years of studies by the military about whether women were fit for combat roles. Earlier this year, the Army recommended the change, while the Marine Corps asked Carter to keep some roles limited to male troops.
