Perhaps the most compelling part of the news story of the Naval Submarine School graduation of the first women to report to submarines was this paragraph:
The guest speaker for the event was retired Capt. Jimmy L. Ellis, whose daughter was one of the graduates. It is the first time a submariner has had his daughter follow him into the submarine service.
And from the perspective of the fictional character Lt. Commander Mollie Sanders, this would also be very compelling.
What is not so compelling are some of the comments to the story that are strongly anti-women.
Others, though, do mention the problem with the tight quarters on a sub in terms of personal hygiene space. (Mitch and I do deal with this in the technothriller “Lt. Commander Mollie Sanders.”)
There are also, of course, very positive comments.
Read the story and the comments now.
Also, in May of 2010 I had the privilege to be on an online Bloggers Roundtable to hear U.S. Navy Rear Admiral Barry Bruner, Commander Submarine Group Ten and lead for the Task Force for Women in Submarines.
Read my blog post that describes what he said about how the technical skills of women are needed on submarines.
