The Marine Corps is pushing back against a mandate from Secretary of Defense Ash Carter to open all combat roles to women by increasing standards, resulting in a female failure rate of 85 percent.

In the last five months, six out of the seven women flunked combat tests, which include pullups, a three-mile run and other difficult tasks, The Associated Press reports.

This failure rate of 85.7 percent is astronomically higher than the failure rate among men, which stands at about 2.7 percent.
