*In Person* Women Warriors, Women’s Voices

*IN PERSON EVENT* Women from across RI will share their experiences as service members and veterans


This event will take place at the Athenæum in front of a live studio audience and will be simulcast via Zoom, as well as recorded.

Women from across Rhode Island will share their experiences as service members and veterans, through poems, stories, essays, and readings.

Sponsored by the Providence Clemente Veterans’ Initiative (PCVI), the Rhode Island State Council for the Arts (RISCA), and the Rhode Island Department of Veterans Affairs.


During the past decade, a million veterans have returned from deployment overseas. Many of them face physical and emotional challenges that make transitioning back to civilian life particularly daunting.

Established in 2015, the Clemente Veterans’ Initiative (CVI) invites students to renew their sense of purpose through deep engagement with the humanities. Exploring questions of war, civic duty, family, and sacrifice, CVI offers veterans a chance to place their personal experience into a broader perspective, one that helps them connect their military experience with their civilian lives.
