Women Veteran Organizations
Women Veterans Advisory Committee was created to ensure that Washington’s women veterans have equitable access to federal and state veterans’ services and benefits. The primary goal of the committee is to reach out to women veterans to improve awareness of eligibility for services and benefits. The Women Veterans Program provides assistance to women who served in the United States Armed Forces or in forces incorporated as part of the United States Armed Forces, and who were discharged under conditions other than dishonorable.
Women Veterans of America (WVA) servces as an advocate for all Women Veterans and for women currently serving in the military, providing information and support, serving as liaison to government agencies and helping women veterans obtain VA benefits.
Women’s contributions and accomplishments for the most part have been overlooked and consequently omitted from mainstream culture. The National Women’s History Museum wants to help fill that void. “The National Women’s History Museum educates, inspires, empowers and shapes the future by integrating women’s distinctive history into the culture and history of the United States.”
“American Women Veterans Foundation believes that women have always been the catalyst for change within our homes, our communities and the world. We envision a society in which the legacy of America’s servicewomen, veterans and their families is celebrated and carried on to future generations of powerful and inspiring women. We strive to empower women from all branches of service with a continued sense of pride and service which enables them to reach their full potential and to contribute as they always have, in making America stronger.”
