Women Veterans

California Women Veterans OutreachToolkit

Dear Veteran Advocate,

I am often asked how organizations, government agencies and individuals can improve the lives of women Veterans. The California Department of Veterans Affairs (CalVet) created the Women Veterans Outreach Toolkit to answer the most frequently asked questions about women Veterans.

This Toolkit assists Veterans and advocates to better understand who we are, what needs we have and the challenges we face. We are far more than just the sum of our military service or our gender. We are women of content and character, of integrity and resourcefulness. We are recognized leaders, steadfast volunteers, conscientious students, honest consumers, and committed workers.
