Free Virtual Screening of The Hello Girls

June 12 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

In honor of the 76th Anniversary of the Women’s Armed Services Integration Act, join Foundation for Women Warriors for a free virtual screening of The Hello Girls on June 12th, 2024 at 4:00 PM (PT).

This documentary features rare 100-year-old film footage of America’s first female soldiers courtesy of the National Archives and never-before-seen photos from family archives.

In 1918, the U.S. Army Signal Corps sent 223 women to France as telephone operators to help win the Great War. They swore Army oaths, wore uniforms, held rank, and were subject to military justice. By war’s end, they had connected over 26 million calls and were recognized by General John J. Pershing for their service.

When they returned home, the U.S. government told them they were never soldiers.
