Join WPT and the Madison Public Library for a free screening of "Served Like a Girl." Lysa Heslov's documentary provides a candid look at a shared sisterhood to help the rising number of homeless women veterans who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, and suffer from PTSD, sexual abuse, and other traumas. By entering into the “Ms. Veteran American” competition, these amazing ladies unexpectedly come full circle in a quest for healing and hope.
Stay after the film for a local community discussion.
