This is such an incredible campaign, I am so honored to be able to share their stories. Most people when they think of veterans they think of men. It's what we mostly see on TV, movies, video games, however, women make up a vast of veterans in the this country and it's time we SEE them!
I got to know the Women's Veterans Center through an event I did a few years ago with the radio station. After visiting the center, I was blown away. These women join the military to change their lives, to fight for us, and most come back from being deployed or finish their time and have no idea what's next. They are single moms who leave their children when deployed. They come home with not much of anything, which is where The Women's Veterans Center comes in. It's a space to help with resumes, childcare, mental health services. They provide clothing, home, and toiletry donations, and so much more! Every time I clean out my apt, I donate to the center.
Through 32 individual portrait photographs, we will showcase the service, strength, and diversity of Women Veterans from the Greater Philadelphia Area. Through this series we hope to educate the public to the diversity of the Veteran demographic, and celebrate the service of Women Veterans in our area.
