ICYMI: Looking back on VA’s month-long celebration of women Veterans and their contributions to the nation
March was Women’s History Month, and VA honored, celebrated, and raised awareness of trailblazing women Veterans in multiple ways throughout the month:
VA’s Center for Women Veterans (CWV) coordinated a traveling exhibit of art created by 10 Women Veterans that was displayed in 10 VA medical centers nationwide throughout the month of March. This initiative, accomplished at no cost to taxpayers due to our collaboration with nonprofit partner Veteran Artist Program and with support from First Data and Veterans Canteen Service, also has an exciting online component that includes videos of the women talking about their military service and creative journeys, as well as the art work of 10 honorable mentions. The exhibit will now travel on to additional sites; please check back on our dedicated webpage for information about locations and events, as well as blogs and podcasts featuring these amazing artists!
