Foundation For Women Warriors Hosts Documentary Screening Honoring Female Patriots
San Diego nonprofit, Foundation for Women Warriors (FFWW) is hosting a free screening of the documentary Unsung Heroes: The Story of America’s Female Patriots. From Academy Award Filmmaker and Executive Producer Ron Howard, this two hour documentary highlights the heroic sacrifices of women that served in the American military.
Ignored no more
Every woman that has ever served has volunteered to do so, but their profound accomplishments have been largely ignored. With rare photographs, archival materials, and personal memorabilia to illustrate this eclectic mix of on-camera interviews, Unsung Heroes is a story of all guts and no glory and how the price of liberty is relevant to all Americans.
FFWW CEO Jodie M. Grenier shares:
“As we reflect on the contributions of women during the month of March, we are honored to share the critical achievements of the trailblazing women who served in defense of our Nation. For far too long, women’s military service, their sacrifices, and accomplishments dating as far back as the Revolutionary War, have remained relatively untold. We are eager to share the incredible stories of women service members who undoubtedly influenced the trajectory and speed of women’s rights at home and all over the world.”
Foundation for Women Warriors’ mission is to serve women veterans and their children so that their next mission is clear and continues to impact the world. FFWW is the only organization in California solely focused on serving women veterans and their families. Their programs enhance the personal and economic wellbeing of women veterans and address the growing needs of the increasing population of military women transitioning to civilian life.
See you there, San Diego!
