The VFW hosted a panel titled, "Women Veterans: Strong and Growing” during its national convention in New Orleans. The panel included three members from the women’s committee, as well as Kayla Williams, the director for VA’s Center for Women Veterans. The panel took questions from members regarding VA health care for women. The attendees included both men and women, and grew to five times the attendance size of the 2016 women’s panel. Since 2008, the VFW’s female membership has grown by 421 percent. Read more about what the VFW is doing for women veterans and see video of the panel discussion.
