Abstract : Women currently play a major role in today's Navy. The contribution they made during Desert Shield/Desert Storm has brought the issue of women in combat to the forefront. The arguments concerning further integration of women in the Navy revolve around mixed gender crews living together for extended periods of time, pregnancy, physical strength requirements, women prisoners of war and the affect integration will have on unit integrity and cohesion. Both sides of these issues are discussed with proposed solutions and recommendations on how to proceed.
