From Jennifer McDermott of Associated Press via Stars and Stripes, March 8, 2018, comes virtual proof “Retention of female submariners on par with men”. McDermott reports, in part:
[Female] retention rates are on par with those of men — much higher than the Navy had anticipated, according to records obtained by The Associated Press.
"I think if there was a sense it was not doing well, we wouldn't have those types of numbers," he said.
Sailors have in some cases organically changed their behavior to accommodate changing times. Some accustomed to sleeping in their underwear now don a robe or sweats to go to the bathroom, for instance, in case they encounter another gender in the hall.
