Women have served in the military since the founding of the Republic. From the story of Molly Pitcher, who served with the Continental Army during the Revolution, to the women serving today, America’s military women have long demonstrated courage, patriotism, and leadership. In fact, over three million women have served in defense of this great nation, but their stories often go untold. The Military Women's Memorial is dedicated to honoring the commitment, contributions and experiences of every woman who serves in, or with, the Armed Forces. In this one-hour webinar, you will hear from Military Women’s Memorial Vice President Robin Phoenix Johnson as she shares how these HERoes have fought for freedom and equality, and open dialogue about how to attract women veterans to your career openings.
