SECTION 1



WOMEN
VETERANS




Women have served in the military from the
American Revolution to the present, and by
2010, roughly 15 percent of all veterans
will be women. Unfortunately, women have
been historically underrepresented in
utilizing the benefits provided for them,
and have often been more reticent in
claiming their veteran status.

The Department of Veterans Affairs is committed
to ensuring that benefits and services for women
veterans are made as accessible as possible, and
has created a number of outreach programs and
revised guidelines toward this end.

Women veterans are entitled to the same VA
benefits as male veterans.


Gender-specific services
and benefits


including breast and pelvic examinations
and preventive care such as contraceptive
services, menopause management, Pap smears,
reproductive counseling, and mammography
are available.

VA health care professionals are trained to
provide counseling and treatment to women
suffering the effects of personal and sexual
assault/harassment during military service.
Care is available for any injury, illness or
psychological illness resulting from such
trauma.

CENTER
FOR
WOMEN
VETERANS




In November 1994, Public Law 103-446 established
the Center for Women to monitor and coordinate
VA's administration of health care and benefits
services and programs for women Veterans.

The Center serves as an advocate for a cultural
transformation (both within VA and in the general
public) in recognizing the service and contributions
of women Veterans and women in the military, and in
raising awareness of the responsibility to treat
women Veterans with dignity and respect.

The Director, Center for Women Veterans, acts as the
primary advisor to the Secretary of Veterans Affairs
on all matters related to policies, legislation,
programs, issues, and initiatives affecting women
Veterans.

GRANTS
FOR
WOMEN
VETERANS




Women veterans are entitled to the same
benefits as male veterans, and they can
receive grants to assist them with
rehabilitation or help them go back to
school.

Grants are not available specifically
for women veterans, as these grants are
available to all veterans. Grants also
are available to help disabled women
veterans purchase adaptive vehicles to
provide locomotion.

All these grants are administered by
the Department of Veterans Affairs.
