Women Veteran Task Force

The Women Veteran Task Force was a bipartisan task force that was created 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 sought to address issues unique to the experiences of women veterans. In the 118th Congress, Rep. Aumua Amata Coleman Radewagen (R-American Samoa) served as Chairman, and Rep. Julia Brownley (D-Calif.) served as Co-Chair. This is a solution-focused task force that spoke with a variety of stakeholders through a handful of roundtables to conclude with comprehensive reports, findings, and recommendations for legislative improvements to enhance the delivery of care, benefits, and services at VA for women veterans.
