Women in War - Makers Film Series - Episode 4

Monday, February 15, 2016
12:00pm – 1:00pm

Storrs Campus
Women's Center, Student Union Room 421

Women in War looks at American women’s increasing participation in war – from Vietnam to the present – as nurses, soldiers, journalists, diplomats and spies. Among those featured are Linda Bray, the first woman to lead troops into battle, and Valerie Plame, whose career was sabotaged after she was “outed” as a high-level spy. Viewers hear from war correspondents like Molly Moore about life on the battlefield. The film shares the stories of military leaders who have broken through gender barrios, like General Angela Salinas, at her retirement the highest ranking woman serving in the USMC, and Vice Admiral Michelle Howard, the highest ranking woman in the history of the US Navy.
