This thesis is exploratory in nature and looks at the history, current status, and prospects of minority women in the officer corps of the U.S. Navy. The recruiting, promotion, and retention of these women is compared to that of whites, using information provided by the Defense Manpower Data Center and other sources. Research focuses on the period from 1972 through 1990. Overall, the study shows a very positive trend occurring for minority women, especially blacks, with steadily increasing representation in the officer corps. However, potential problem areas are found in the distribution of minority women across occupations and in their related prospects for advancement. In addition, evidence suggests that future participation by minority women may be adversely influenced by the planned reduction of Navy personnel. Several recommendations for further research are made, including the longitudinal tracking of minority women through their promotional flowpoints,
