Problems Faced By Female Veterans
According to a recent study conducted among U.S. military veterans, women are more likely to suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) than their male counterparts. PTSD is an illness that can occur after experiencing or witnessing traumatic events such as war or violent crime. There are many other problems faced by Female Veterans. For instance, one problem is finding suitable employment. Since women are still a minority in the military, their skills are not widely known, making it difficult for them to find jobs.
Another problem faced by female veterans is homelessness. This is more likely to happen when they can’t get any assistance from the government or programs that exist specifically for women with children.
Today there are some support programs that are only designated for women veterans. Yet another problem is receiving proper medical care or treatment after returning from service, as they suffer from being a minority in the military community.
