No Women Advance In Army Ranger Course

The first class of US army ranger trainees to include women will move on without any of its female members. That's because none of the 19 women in a class of 400 succeeded in passing to the second phase of training.
The army allowed women to apply to the historically all-male course for the first time last year, expecting up to 80 recruits. The course opening is part of a push to include women in combat roles. However, the unsuccessful training has some questioning the course’s standards.
The army said in a statement that this is a normal part of the course for students who “struggle with one aspect of the course and excel at others."
