This chapter recounts the experiences of three women in the Naval Academy Preparatory School (NAPS) and the first group of 81 women at the United States Naval Academy (USNA). It describes the pressures they faced upon their arrival until their commencement day in 1980. At USNA, the women experienced difficulties with their uniforms, the media, Academy officers and faculty, alumni, and male midshipmen. Male midshipmen, for example, subjected women plebes to a variety of pranks, some of which were overtly cruel and dangerous.
