The U.S Marine Corps is lifting one more restriction placed on women recruits.
In 2014, all female Marines will be required to perform pull-ups during their annual physical fitness test, just like their male counterparts.
It is the latest in a wave of changes the Marine Corps is making to break long-standing gender inequalities.
The decision was announced the same day that four female veterans sued the defense department over policies that restrict women from some combat positions.
