Advocacy Women, past and present, have been an invaluable part of our country's military. It's time we proudly show our support.
Know the facts
Did you know that women veterans are four times more likely to be homeless than their male counterparts? According to the VA, women are the fastest-growing segment of the homeless veteran population. Similarly, research by the Society for Women's Health Research has found sex and gender differences with health issues that can affect the symptoms and treatments for many health conditions such as PTSD, traumatic brain injury (TBI), musculoskeletal disorders and depression.
Fatigues to Fabulous (F2F) is an ongoing national campaign established to honor and support female veterans as they transition home.
The Society for Women’s Health Research (SWHR) is joining forces with various Veterans Service Organizations and the Fashion Industry to raise awareness of the unique physical, emotional, and psychological challenges female veterans face, and to harness resources to support them.
"Just as disease affects women differently than men, military women experience different health concerns than their male counterparts."
SWHR, a national non-profit based in Washington, DC is widely recognized as the thought leader in research on sex differences and is dedicated to improving women’s health through advocacy, education, and research.
