#EMPOWER WOMEN VETS
Women represent the fastest-growing population among military service members and veterans. As the population grows, we continue to learn more about their experiences.
In Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) research, for instance, women warriors report a lack of recognition for their service and a misconception of women in combat. They report anxiety, depression, and military sexual trauma (MST) at higher rates than male warriors. While women are breaking down barriers in service to our country, they still experience unique challenges – in uniform and after service.
WWP developed the Women Warriors Initiative to address these disparities and empower our sisters who have served.
