    G.I. Jane The movie is about a female soldier that is going to Special Forces training. This training is only supposed to be for men, and she will be the first woman at this training. She went to the training because the Senator from Texas wanted to prove that women can do the same job that a man can.   The G.I. Bill opened college education to the masses, transformed America from a nation of renters into a nation of homeowners, and enabled an era of prosperity never before seen in the world.

Creating G.I. Jane explores the climate and response to women in the military as well as problems related to integrating women for the first time. Because it does delve into propaganda and underlying motives as well as controversial subjects, there is some concern that the book primarily functions as a gender study and may not fully represent 5/5(4).

I love G.I Jane. "The more everyone ___ with me, the more I want to gut it out" - Jordan O' Neill As great as the films antagonist and very intriguing supporting characters are, Demi Moore is the standout here, giving Lt.

Jordan O' Neill her trademark unapologetic attitude/5(). G.I. Jane feels somewhat ham-fisted and quaint now, but the electric chemistry between the actors and the importance of its message can still be felt today.

"I'm not interested in being some poster girl for women's rights,'' says Lt.

Jordan O'Neil, played by Demi Moore in "G.I. Jane.'' She just wants to prove a woman can survive Navy SEAL training so rigorous that 60 percent of the men don't make it.

Her protest loses a little of its ring if you drive down Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, as I did the other night, and see Demi Moore in a crewcut. Boy, I was really ready to hate G.I. Jane. Stupid title, stupid Demi Moore with her pretty face and no talent, stupid Hollywood movie that will gussy the military up and splatter it with a lot of politically correct bull dinky.

Harris, the author of other books on the subject - has hit a home run with "Five Came Back". World War 2 was really the first "filmed" war.
