Please join us on Wednesday, 24 March, at 1400 for a presentation by Diane Carlson Evans, author of Healing Wounds: A Vietnam War Combat Nurse’s 10-Year Fight to Win Women a Place of Honor in Washington, D.C.Eileen Rivers, author of Beyond the Call: Three Women on the Front Lines in Afghanistan, Kayla M. Williams, author of Love My Rifle More Than You: Young and Female in the U.S. Army and Plenty of Time When We Get Home: Love & Recovery in the Aftermath of War, and Shannon Huffman Polson, author of The Grit Factor: Courage, Resilience, and Leadership in the Most Male-Dominated Organization in the World.

The speakers, all authors and veterans, will talk about their struggles for equality in an organization that is overwhelmingly male. They will show that progress has been made over the years—and that more work is needed to open the doors to women at all levels.
