When the Women Returned: The Difficult Journey Home for Women in the Military

March 18 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

What happens when women return from deployment?  Join us for this free Zoom panel exploring the lives of military women and their uniquely difficult journey transitioning back to civilian life.  This panel will feature opening remarks by Dr. Kate Hendricks Thomas, author of Invisible Veterans: What Happens When Military Women Become Civilians Again (our March Brown Bag Book Club selection) and an academic researcher, storyteller, and United States Marine Corps Veteran.  In addition to Dr. Hendricks Thomas, you’ll hear about the real-life experiences of other women veterans, including Dr. Doreen Loury, member of The Philadelphia Commission for Women, Director of Pan African Studies at Arcadia University, and United States Marine Corps Veteran.  Before the panel, we encourage audience members to screen “SERVICE: When Women Come Marching Home” by Marcia Rock.  While we encourage people to rent the documentary, it isn’t required to attend the event!
