Col. Ellen Haring, S-CAR PhD Student, Successfully Takes on the U.S. Military’s Ban on Women in Combat
S-CAR Ph.D. student Col. Ellen Haring boldly took on the Department of Defense’s ban on women in combat in a class action law suit, eventually leading to the D.O.D.’s decision to lift the ban on January 23, 2013.
CGC’s Patrick Hakizimana sat down with Col. Haring to talk about the lawsuit, her research at S-CAR, and her passion for gender equity in the U.S. military. Click on the video to watch the interview.
