Founded in 2007, the Service Women’s Action Network (SWAN) is the voice of all military women – past, present and future. They are a member-driven community network advocating for the individual and collective needs of service women. SWAN is guided by the priorities of their members, who include thousands of women and men, service members and civilians alike. They are committed to seeing that all service women receive the opportunities, protections, benefits and respect they deserve. SWAN has played a major role in shaping the outcome of many important issues affecting women in the service including opening all military jobs to service women, holding sex offenders accountable in the military justice system, eliminating barriers to disability claims for those who have experienced military sexual trauma, and expanding access to services for a broad range of reproductive healthcare services.
Their mission is to be the nation’s most influential and effective network of service women, acting as their champion, advocate and best information resource.
