Summary
"In 2015 the Pentagon changed a historical ruling, allowing American women to serve in front-line ground combat troops. Women have served in the military throughout history. Yet no matter their title, they face discrimination and even sexual assault. Meet the women who serve their country and stand up for fairness."--Provided by publisher
