Swords to Plowshares, a San Francisco-based veteran service organization, developed a unique way to engage with women veterans: SHOUT!: Art by Women Veterans. SHOUT! was inspired by the notion that the arts encourage expression and healing. SHOUT! raises awareness about the issues facing women veterans and explores the intersections of art, community, health and healing.
SHOUT! is an ongoing effort in its fourth year that sprouted from the fact that the needs of women veterans are largely unrecognized and unmet. The unique needs of women veterans were not being met and Swords wanted to ensure that they had access to the care and support they needed.
