Arrow G.I. Jane

Theatrical release poster..
A Senate Armed Services Committee interviews a candidate for the position of Secretary of the Navy.. Senator Lillian DeHaven from Texas criticizes the Navy for not being gender-neutral.. Behind the curtains, a deal is struck: If women compare favorably with men in a series of test cases, the military will integrate women fully into all branches of the Navy..To make the grade, O'Neil must survive a grueling selection program in which almost 60 percent of all candidates wash out, most in the first week ("hell week").. The enigmatic Command Master Chief John James Urgayle runs the brutal training program that involves 20-hour days of tasks designed to wear down recruits' physical and mental strength, including pushing giant ship fenders up beach dunes, working through obstacle courses, and hauling landing rafts..Given a 30-second time allowance in an obstacle course, O'Neil demands to be held to the same standards as the male trainees..Release dates USA/Lebanon August 22, 1997...
