Changes to US Marines

The US Marines are changing fitness requirements for women.   In 2014, all female marines will have to perfrom pullups during their annual physical fitness test, the same as the men.   Over the last year, more jobs have opened for female marines that were once off limits.   Four female veterans are suing the defense department over policies that restrict them from combat.

    When it comes to physical work men and women surely have different capacities. I am not sure whether to support these changes or not.
