Join us as we explore the incredible story of The Hello Girls – America’s first women soldiers. They helped us win WWI, but their battle for recognition and their veterans’ rights continued for 60 years after the fighting stopped on the western front.
It is a powerful story of heroism and empowerment set against the backdrops of WWI and the Women’s Suffrage movement.
