The Women Veteran Task Force is a bipartisan task force that has been authorized by the House Veterans’ Affairs Committee for a 6-month period. Established during the 116th Congress by former Chairman and current Ranking Member Takano, the task force intends to address issues unique to the experiences of women veterans. In the 118th Congress, Rep. Aumua Amata Coleman Radewagen (R-American Samoa) will serve as Chairman, and Rep. Julia Brownley (D-Calif.) will serve as Co-Chair. This is a solution-focused task force that will bring a variety of stakeholders to the table through a handful of roundtables, concluding with a public report detailing the task force’s findings and recommendations.
