Carter said the issues raised by Dunford are reflected in the guidelines that DOD will now follow when moving women into more combat roles. The guidelines are: jobs will be filled based on ability, not gender; "equal opportunity" will likely not be "equal participation"; higher rates of injury among women participating in ground combat will be addressed; the cultural shift needed to have women serve in previously all-male combat roles will be addressed; ensure promotions in combat specialties continue to be merit-based; acknowledge the presence of women in some units abroad might complicate cooperation with countries that are culturally opposed to working with them, and monitor the new policy’s impact on the fighting force.
