New Documentary Brings Women’s Military Service to Light

April 11, 2013

Women make up 14.5 percent of today’s military, and that number is expected to double in 10 years. Now, a new documentary made in part with a research grant from the Disabled American Veterans portrays the courage of several female veterans as they transition from active duty to their civilian lives. In Service: When Women Come Marching Home, by NYU journalism professor Marcia Rock and Patricia Lee Stotter, we see the traumas they faced, their invisible as well as physical injuries, and all their challenges in receiving benefits and care.

The film is part of a larger project—through robust social media, Service continues supporting women through open and closed Facebook groups where women can exchange information, find friendship, and share solutions that have changed their lives. It is airing at universities, other series, and on PBS stations across the country.
