A few of you mentioned Janice Lester. Frankly, I'd be just as happy if they just retconned it so that women could always be captain - and Janice couldnt be captain because she was NUTS, not because she was a woman.

after all, we saw women captains in the movies.
I just don't think we've seen enough (if any) women Captains in this universe to prove JL wrong.
In TOS including the movies I remember just one woman captain and that was well after the time of JL.
There's at least one wearing captains stripes in the briefing after the Harrison attack.
There was a Vulcan sitting to the left of Admiral Marcus in that briefing room. If memory serves, she was a woman in an admiral's uniform. (Gotta go see the movie again!)

In both universes, the first captain of NX-02 was Erika Hernandez. Of course that's not Starfleet, if it matters.
