California's Women Veterans: Responses to the 2011 Survey. CRB Briefly Stated
Blanton, Rebecca E.; Foster, Lisa K.
California Research Bureau
Women veterans' needs have been subsumed under the needs of veterans in general for many years. Because women veterans make up less than ten percent of the total current veteran population, their unique needs have been obscured by this, but this is beginning to change. The federal Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), the California Department of Veterans Affairs (CalVet), and the California Commission on the Status of Women (the Commission) have highlighted the unique needs of women veterans in the past five years. CalVet and the Commission asked the CRB to conduct a second iteration of the Women Veterans Survey, originally completed in 2009. This iteration of the survey was used to measure the current needs of women veterans and establish a baseline for service utilization. This Briefly Stated describes the 2011 Survey, its key findings, and conclusions. (Contains 3 figures.) [For the full report, "California's Women Veterans: Responses to the 2011 Survey.
