The inaugural meeting of the Military Women’s Coalition was held in Atlanta, Ga., Sept. 7, 2018. The Honorable Robert Wilkie, Secretary of Veterans Affairs, delivered opening remarks at the inaugural meeting, promising to make the VA more responsive to women veterans. The meeting brought together more than 130 women veterans and service women, representing women’s military groups from across the country, to join forces in creating an unprecedented national coalition dedicated to advocating for the well being of women veterans and service women. The service women who attended the coalition meeting worked in three separate working groups to create the foundational principles for how the Coalition will work. The Military Women’s Coalition Inaugural Meeting Report is the result of their work.
