Women served with distinction in WWII, women pilots ferried planes everywhere, WASP’s I they were called. My mom was invited to join but her vision may have been a problem.
There are many women serving as deck officers and marine engineers on merchant ships chartered to the navy and
are doing well in those positions.
I hasten to point out that none of the women you alluded to served in combat or in combat vessels!
Women in ships was one of, if not THE, biggest mistakes the USN has made since WW II!
There are a whole host of reasons for my saying that, not the least is the sex at sea reason!
