Women sue for right to combat jobs 02:12

Two Army reservists have sued the Defense Department for excluding women from combat jobs.

"It stigmatizes women's service as not as important as male service," said Col. Ellen Haring, a plaintiff in the case."We're excluded from branches that allow career progression to the highest ranks."
Haring spoke to CNN's Pentagon Correspondent Chris Lawrence for The Situation Room.
