Earlier this month the Marine Corps announced that it was opening up more jobs in combat units to women in the Marine Reserves.
Although still barred from direct combat roles, this opens up certain jobs in the following Marine Corps units:
These openings are for women holding the rank of either captain, first lieutenant, second lieutenant, captain, staff sergeant or gunnery sergeant. The opened MOS fields that are opened are personnel and administration, recruiting and retention, logistics, intelligence, communications, public affairs, CBRN, electronics maintenance, aviation ordnance, meteorology and oceanography.
This is a similar change to the one made in January 2013, which opened up many non-combat jobs in combat units to women. The Marine Corps is also currently studying the possibility of allowing women in direct combat jobs by 2016.
