Galvanize Support for Women Veterans
IAVA celebrates the service of women veterans, while recognizing the unique challenges they face.
In 2017, IAVA launched the groundbreaking #SheWhoBorneTheBattle campaign, which focused on recognizing the service of women veterans and closing gaps in care provided to them by the VA. While many other organizations waited or prioritized other issues, IAVA made the bold choice to lead on an issue that was important to not just the 20% of our members that are women, but to our entire membership, the future of healthcare and America’s national security. We fought hard for top-down culture change in the VA for the more than 345,000 women who have fought in our current wars – and for all Americans.
