A Forum on Women Veterans

A Forum on Women Veterans


On July 28, 2010, A Forum on Women Veterans will be held at the Women's Memorial in Arlington, Virginia, highlighting enhancements in VA services and benefits for women Veterans—Knowledge is Power. This is a rare opportunity to hear from VA leadership on women Veteran's health, homelessness, benefits, and other issues, and to collect vital information on timely services and benefits.

Registration is full

Thank you for your interest in the Forum on Women Veterans.  Registration is closed.  Be sure to watch this Web site for presentation materials and video highlights after the Forum.  And, connect with your local VA medical center or regional office to learn about activities and services for women Veterans. 


About the Forum

The Forum begins with registration check-in at 7 a.m. The morning program begins at 7:30 and includes presentations on enhancements in VA benefits and services to women Veterans. Lunch will be available for participants. The afternoon program consists of an “information marketplace” in which participants are invited to move through the gallery and gather resources and materials provided by VA program offices, VSOs, and advocacy organizations. The marketplace will enable attendees to build a toolkit specific to their needs, for use in their work with women Veterans. Participants are also invited back to the auditorium for film screenings, including the updated "Lioness" documentary. The Forum concludes at 3 p.m.

Presentations from the event will be available on the Center for Women Veterans website. Feedback about this event and announcements on future events will be available to Forum participants. For more information contact the Center for Women Veterans at (202) 461-6193 or
