Although the open hostility toward women lessened after the class of 1980, attitudes about women at the United States Naval Academy (USNA) were still unresolved. Issues of harassment and improper treatment of women, including derogatory comments and offensive jokes, have not disappeared. Because women became overly conscious of their weight, they also developed eating disorders. This chapter examines both the progress and the continuing difficulties for women in the Naval Academy since 1980. It also discusses the policies enforced by Academy officials against sexual harassment, the implementation of a women's health care program, and plans dealing with athletics, maternity, and support for women.

Keywords:   women, USNA, harassment, Naval Academy, sexual harassment, health care, athletics, maternity
