Two women break barrier of Army Ranger School

Clip: 08/18/2015 | 10m 29s

For the first time, two women have completed the Army’s rigorous Ranger School training program. But unlike their fellow male graduates, they will not yet be allowed to serve in elite Ranger units, due to the Pentagon’s current ban on women in combat. Judy Woodruff talks to Gayle Tzemach Lemmon of the Council on Foreign Relations and retired Col. Ellen Haring of Women in International Security.
