Marine Corps Study: Male Infantry Units Outperform Units With Females

A Marine Corps study has found that ground units made up only of men perform better than units with men and women.

According to the study released Thursday, women were injured twice as often as men, aren’t as accurate at shooting and have a harder time removing wounded troops from the battlefield.

The study found that women who had been through infantry target school were less accurate at hitting targets with M4 rifles than men who had not had the schooling.

Men hit targets 44 percent of the time, while women hit targets only 28 percent of the time.Men were able to move faster carrying gear than women and could throw their packs over a wall, whereas women had to have help getting their gear over.
