The Female Battalion

S1 E2 Taking on the dreaded recon obstacle course

After cleaning an impossibly dirty tank, the girls relax with one of their favourite movies: G.I. Jane. The film sparks a heated debate on how men’s views of women in the military can affect romantic relationships. Though many of the cadets’ girlfriends think they were crazy to join the army, these young women still see the opportunity as a dream come true. This commitment is put to the test the next day, when they are unexpectedly ordered to take on the army’s most difficult obstacle course.
