Women's acceptance into the Brigade of Midshipmen—the formal name for the population of midshipmen enrolled in the United States Naval Academy (USNA)—was a significant step in helping women fulfil their roles and responsibilities as American citizens. This chapter describes women's earliest presence at Annapolis and their roles in the Naval Academy community prior to 1976. It also follows a number of young women in their attempts to seek admission to the Academy, many of which were unsuccessful. In spite of many issues regarding the policy changes to integrate women into the USNA, the federal government eventually allowed women to attend the Naval Academy.
