The Iraq conflict has been called "the women's war" in the media, but the women who have been deployed since its beginning have largely been unheard and unseen. We may all have different reasons for wanting to see the faces and hear the stories of women combat veterans. Regardless of one's perspective, these are faces we need to see and stories we need to know.
Author Laura Browder and photographer Sascha Pflaeging collaborated to tell — and show &mdash the stories of women soldiers. See more of these portraits and hear audio from the women soldiers themselves at the website of the Virginia Quarterly Review.
