* GenderIsNoObject: The film's [[AnAesop aesop]] is that militaries should be this way.

Senator Lillian De Haven of Texas (Creator/AnneBancroft) publicly criticizes the United States Navy for its failure to integrate both male and female recruits to all its services. She strikes a deal, arranging for a series of test cases. A single woman will join each branch currently fully-staffed by males service and try to perform as well as her male colleagues. The first test case has Lieutenant Jordan O' Neil (Moore) joining the U.S. Navy Combined Reconnaissance Team.
