Problem Statement: -Employment statistics suggest a disparity between female veterans and their male veteran and female non-veteran counterparts in several employment categories. Knowing more about these constraints will help to better address the barriers and prevent them from happening in the future. The unemployment rate of women veterans is higher than male veterans and their non-veteran female counterparts. After discharge from the military, female veterans face several difficult challenges in finding employment including, but not limited to: Being less likely to self-identify as veteran thus utilizing fewer government benefits; greater stigma regarding their military service; higher rates of mental illness and PTSD due to sexual trauma; and most programs aimed at helping veterans are disproportionately aimed at male veterans. -Must use at least 20 legitimate resources - either peer reviewed or authoritative; please use the three attached and add any others.
