Ideals

WomenVetsUSA believes that when women with military service benefit from these ideals, their families, communities, military and veteran colleagues, country, and other nations are also better served.

  • Achievement and sustainment of lifelong well-being, self-sufficiency, learning, and camaraderie.
  • Equitable access to non-discriminatory professional military and civilian employment opportunities and promotions realized through workplace culture expectations, laws, regulations, policies, validated occupational standards, mentorship, and demonstrated competency.
  • Employment and care in professional military and veteran organizations that do not tolerate, ignore or condone sexual harassment, sexual violence, and sex and labor exploitation and trafficking perpetrated by those they employ--military, civil service, and contractors--against any human being during peacetime, global conflicts, and wars at home or abroad.
  • Representation, investigation, adjudication, and protection by just and impartial military and civilian federal, state and local law enforcement and justice systems.
  • Access to veteran-responsive incarceration and court programs when justice-involved.
  • Access to inclusive, competent, responsive, and progressive in-person and virtual outreach and referral within communities and through online resources.
  • Access to and availability of professional, gender-proficient physical and mental health care and gender-sensitive caregiving practices within environments of care cognizant of women's combat and noncombat military experiences.
  • Purposeful, planned inclusion in military and veteran data collection projects, research agendas, and outreach efforts.
  • Representation on standing and ad hoc military, veteran, state and federal government, community, and professional association boards and commissions.  For women in the military, access to their Uniform and Equipment Board(s) and provision of and access to a full complement of gender-specific non-combat and combat military uniforms, personal protective gear and other related equipment are all vital to individual health and unit readiness.
  • Enhanced public awareness of women's military service informed by inclusive media communications, advertising, marketing, and associated branding and through public engagement opportunities.
  • Consideration and inclusion of women with military service in community activities, services, lawmaking, media, history, and heritage.
