Who are the women behind the scenes?

We’re the people who make sure the the Athenas’s Sisters structure – fiduciary, legal, and programmatic are created, tested, and implemented. We come from a diverse background, racially, ethnically, socioeconomically, and even branch of service. The threads that ties us together: military service and a belief that we can make a difference in our world by providing an organization that all military women to use revolutionary expressions to grow in dignity and honor. Are you a military woman who is ready to join us? There is no better time to join than now.

We are a small team of committed servicewomen and veterans who believe that we can make a difference together with you. Even if you are not a woman or a veteran, you can still join us as a supporter. Together we will build. Together we will make a difference. Together, we will create safe spaces for our female veterans to heal, to grow, and to build power.
