Served Like a Girl


Director Lysa Heslov’s powerful documentary, “Served Like a Girl,” follows several American women who were wounded in action and are now transitioning from soldier to civilian after serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. Struggling with PTSD, homelessness, broken families, divorce, serious illness and military sexual abuse, these remarkable women harness humor to adapt to the emotional, social and economic challenges they face through the Ms. Veteran America competition. This film and discussion is on May 23, 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Anacostia Community Museum, 1901 Fort Pl. SE.
