Task force to highlight ‘forgotten’ and 'invisible’ women veterans
The United States has nearly 2 million women veterans today, but but Rep. Julia Brownley thinks many Americans never really see them.
“Women veterans are too often overlooked, forgotten or feel invisible,” said Brownley, D-Calif. “We are here today to change that. Women have served in uniform since this country’s earliest days … but for far too long their issues have been unnoticed or ignored.”
On Thursday, the Brownley formally launched the House Veterans’ Affairs Committee’s new task force on women veterans, with the goal of “advancing equity in access to resources, benefits and healthcare” for the group.
