Download: Military Requirements for Women
The U.S. Marines’ decision to delay a physical fitness requirement for women has sparked a debate on their role in the military.
Effective this year, women were going to be required to do three pull-ups, but Inquirer News reports more than half of the female troops at boot camp couldn’t do it.
Critics claim the women are being held to a lower standard.
The military does not want the requirement to negatively impact women’s status in the Marines.
