Women in the Armed Forces: From WWII and Beyond
November 10 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm
During World War II, 1,102 American women flew as part of the WASP (Women Airforce Service Pilots) – a blend of the Women’s Auxiliary Ferrying Squadron (WAFS) and the Women’s Flying Training Detachment (WFTD). During the war, women also served in various other roles as well – not just pilots. Now, more than 77 years since the WASP were disbanded, more is still being rediscovered about women’s U.S. military roles.
In honor of Veteran’s Day, join International Women’s Air & Space Museum Executive Director Sara Fisher as she explores and shares the contributions of women in the military. Learn about the leaders, participants, trailblazers, and the changing face of the U.S. military since the Second World War, and the obstacles they faced with particular attention to women in air and space.
Registration is $10, and donations are always welcome. Attendees will receive a Zoom link to join the program. The event will be recorded and made available to participants at a later date. To learn more, visit www.iwasm.org, call 216-623-1111, or email info@iwasm.
