Welcome to our community of women veterans! If you ever served in the military or are currently serving on Active Duty, in the Reserves or National Guard, we hope you'll join us as we support future generations of women veterans in their transition from military service.

“Let the generations know that women in uniform also guaranteed their freedom. That our resolve was just as great as the brave men who stood among us…”--WWII Army Nurse
Our vision for WOVEN is to establish a supportive community for weaving women veterans of all eras, experiences, geographies, and armed services together in the spirit of connecting, sharing, and serving each other, our fellow veterans, their families and our communities.
Since we are a network of volunteers, there is never any pressure to attend meetings. Our goal is to ensure our contributions as women veterans remain visible and memorable.
Why We Do It
There are over 2.2 million women veterans in the U.S. and Puerto Rico, and our numbers are rising since women now comprise over 15% of our Active Duty forces, 17% of our Reserve and National Guard, and 20% of new military recruits. As of 2013, Women veterans make up 10% of the veteran population!
