The Marine Corps is Going Gender Neutral!

This is so exciting! In a step towards gender neutrality, the Marine Corps is taking the word “man” out of 19 job titles.

According to the Marine Corps Times, an announcement with the new titles will be sent around within the next few days.

It’s expected that the word man will be replaced by the word marine in many cases. For example, Basic Infantryman will be changed to Basic Infantry Marine.

“As we achieve full integration of the force … this is an opportunity to update the position titles and descriptions themselves to demonstrate through this language that women are included,” Navy Secretary Ray Mabus stated.

Congrats women of the marine corps!
