The MWC is a national group of formal and informal organizations who work collaboratively to serve and support US active duty, Guard, Reserve, Veteran, and retired servicewomen by uniting and elevating their voices to influence policy and improve their well-being. 

Background

Women have officially served in the military since 1901; unofficially they have served in every US conflict since the American Revolution. Today, more than 350,000 women are in uniform and there are over 2 million living women veterans. Yet to this day, women’s contributions to our national defense go unrecognized by the American public. Despite two centuries of service to our nation, they continue to face gender bias and barriers within the military and when attempting to access the VA benefits and services they have earned while defending our nation.
