“G.I. Jane” quotes(1997)
Plot – The US Congress is discussing about the admission of women to the Navy Seals' training. Senator Lillian DeHaven imposes herself and obtains the admission of a female element to the selection. The choice falls on Jordan O'Neil, officer in Naval Intelligence. Jordan's presence in the camp creates confusion between the commander, the other officers and the recruits.

O'Neil spends hellish weeks and many colleagues expect the woman to leave the camp, as well as Senator DeHaven herself, who would prefer the failure of her initiative.
