Solving Invisible Issues for Women Leaving the Military GUEST: Ariel Shivers-McGrew
We are grateful for a woman's service in the military.
We need to consider the issues a woman faces when leaving the military, and re-entering civilian life.
Those of us who have not served need to understand these issues because we can help.
I asked my guest, Ariel Shivers-McGrew, what the greatest benefit she received from being a woman in the military. Her answers may surprise you! And, they were positive! Now, she helps women understand and solve the issues of re-entry into civilian life.
Re-entry can be difficult:
- Finding work.
- Re-establishing family life.
- Substance abuse after leaving.
- Finding a mentor to help with the transition.
A year ago, I found myself with bags of clothing to give away, clothing that reflected years on stage as a speaker. When I looked for a place to donate it, I was delighted to find that, on that very day, there was a clothing drive for women leaving the military and entering the civilian work force.
I hadn't thought about that need before. Have you?
Even though I haven't served myself, I saw that there were community needs for these women that I was unaware of. Today's guest draws
attention to the unique needs of women leaving the military.
