Women Veterans From Vietnam to Iraq

Recently, a number of women who served as nurses or medics in Vietnam have contacted us about the film. Many feel a strong bond with the latest generation of women veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan. We look forward to exploring this connection on the panel "Women Veterans: Citizen-soldiers in Changing Times," which is presented in conjunction with the Brooklyn Historical Society exhibit In their own words: Portraits of Brooklyn's Vietnam Veterans.

Each year I manage to see a couple [of films] that I can’t get out of my head. This year one of the films was Lioness.
