Women who want to win without losing male approval temper their victories with beauty, with softness, with smallness, with smiles” (Signs of Life in the USA 540). This statement is well rooted is many movies such as Legally Blonde & Private Benjamin, but in the movie G.I. Jane, femininity is thrown to the wayside in order to gain the respect of men and move up the ladder of success in the workplace. The movie tells a story of a woman, Lt. Jordan O’Neil, and her journey of being the first woman test case for the U.S. Navy Combined Reconnaissance Team.

Da-Duh is extremely vexed because her previous conceptions of her culture’s superiority were just proven wrong.

She wrote in “Thinking About Shakespeare’s Sister”, about the acceptable actions that were performed on women specifically to oppress them. Actions life domestic abuse, arranged marriages, and being the property of the males in their lives. This was hundreds of years ago, but somewhere along the way we gradually gained independence and respect. I see this not as a need for an end to feminism.

Mrs. Quindlen is valid when she says, “Women have managed to serve in military positions without destroying unit cohesion or failing because of upper-body strength.” Women have served in combat situations like the Balkans and the Middle East. Women have been able to out-rank men and fly fighter jets to take out Afghanistan targets without male soldiers becoming jealous or lustful. Women are capable of the same tasks as their male counter parts. It seems that men of no objection to having superior women officers and there should be no question whether or not women can do the job. It is letting women take the chance to fight for the country in a time of crisis just like men.
