The woman’s fight goes far beyond the battlefield of a foreign land. Long after their deployments have ended and their duty has been fulfilled, women continue to struggle with the issues of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and sexual assault. They continue to fight for the right to be heard, understood, and treated for these traumas experience during their service in the military.
