Tired of being excluded from many positions in my military, Fox News reports that four army women are now suing for the right to serve in greater combat roles within the military.

Bringing new voices to an old fight, the argument for women's rights to combat has been going on for years. The new fight is aimed at eliminating the policies that specifically exclude women from some service in the military, specifically combat roles.

Two of the four women filing lawsuit have actually received Purple Hearts for injuries sustained in Afghanistan, with the group being represented by the American Civil Liberties Union.
