Lioness at National Summit for Women Veterans Issues

We recently screened Lioness at the National Summit for Women Veterans Issues in Washington, DC which was organized by the Center for Women Veterans at the VA. We met many people who are working to address the needs of women veterans, especially those most recently deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. See the list of our partners on the Get Involved page for more information on what you can do to support their efforts to provide better services for women in the military.

If you are a health care provider or activist working on female veteran issues, we'd love to hear from you on our blog.

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.
