Okay, as far as I can tell women in TOS always displayed their ranks, even in the films...
I'm afraid not. While the films may have done better to some extent, many (if not most) women appearing in the original TV series displayed no rank insignia whatsoever, even in cases when dialogue indicated that they should.

I can name three women that displayed ranks in TOS other than Lieutenant Uhura 1. Lieutenant Carolyn Palamas ( who mourns for Adonias ?) 2. Lieutenant Galway (The Deadly Years) 3. Lieutenant Rahda (That Which Survives ) Bonus: Dr Anne MulHall ( Return to tomorrow) she was a Lieutenant Commander.
Charlene Masters is identified in dialogue as a Lieutenant, yet did not display the sleeve stripe for that rank. Dr. Helen Noel should be at least a Lt. Commander, but wears no rank insignia. Lt. Marla McGivers wears no rank insignia. If you look past the speaking parts and focus on the background characters, you'll see that very few of them display rank insignia.

So no. Even the most casual examination shows this not to be the case.
