Women at War: Served Like a Girl

Wednesday, May 16, 6:30 p.m.

Since the advent of the modern American military, women have actively served in the U.S. Armed Forces. Join Kansas City PBS for a free screening of a new documentary, Served Like a Girl, which chronicles the lives of female veterans as they harness humor to adapt to the emotional, social and economic challenges of transitioning from soldier to civilian and compete for the crown of Ms. Veteran America. A local veterans panel will address the contemporary issues in the film for our community and how women's service has changed since WWI. Presented in partnership with KCPT and the National Archives at Kansas City. Reception begins at 6 p.m. FREE with RSVP | J. C. Nichols Auditorium
