WWP Responds to Troubling Findings Regarding Female Veteran Care at VA

Over the last year, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has made significant strides in recognizing the unique needs of women veterans and trying to address the fact that one in four women veterans report experiencing harassment when visiting VA health care facilities.  

Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) values the many sacrifices of all women who have served and is extremely concerned with the findings issued last week by VA’s Office of Inspector General. All women veterans who visit VA facilities deserve to feel safe and receive the highest quality of care. When women step forward with allegations of sexual harassment or assault, each report should be thoroughly investigated.

Over the last year, WWP has engaged with more than 5,000 women warriors to learn about their needs and the different challenges they face when navigating VA, and harassment continues to be a concern. WWP is committed to working with VA and Congress to ensure women veterans are provided the care they have earned in safe and welcoming VA facilities.

VA can and must do better.
