Women in the Armed Forces: WWII and Beyond In-Person

Registration begins March 15th. During World War II, 1,102 American women flew as part of the WASP (Women Airforce Service Pilots), a blend of the Women's Auxiliary Ferrying Squadron (WAFS) and the Women's Flying Training Detachment (WFTD). During the war, women also served in various other roles as well – not just pilots. However, more than 77 years since the WASP were disbanded, more is still being re-discovered about women’s roles in the U.S. Military. Join International Women’s Air and Space Museum Executive Director Sara Fisher as she explores and shares the contributions of women in the military. Learn about the leaders, participants and trailblazers in the changing face of the U.S. military since World War II and the obstacles they faced with particular attention to women in air and space. Presented by Sara Fisher Executive Director of the International Women's Air and Space Museum.
