Explore the history of women in the military and how it has changed over time.
The experience of women in the military is much broader than stories you may have seen in the news. Explore the history of women in the military and how it has changed over time. Get to know the struggles and prejudice women face, as well as some of the contributions that women have made and the pioneering women pushing the current boundaries. Hear some of the stories from a variety of women who are serving or have served this country. This workshop is discussion oriented, and we hope for participants to share their stories and ask questions. While there is a goal to create community for female veterans and service members, we’d like that community to include and encourage anyone to join regardless of gender or time in service.
NOTE: This class is coordinated with the Common Ground on the Hill Veterans Initiative class in Pd. 2. Students are encouraged to enroll in both courses.
