From the State Library

Please forward this information to your member libraries. Thanks. More info is in the attached document.

In 2008, the Commission on the Status of Women and then-Assembly member Lois Wolk asked the California State Library through its California Research Bureau (CRB) to administer a survey to California women veterans. This survey led to “California’s Women Veterans: The Challenges and Needs of Those Who Served,” a 2009 report that provided insight to state legislators on the service barriers to California women veterans.

The Commission and California Department of Veterans Affairs is now requesting that CRB assist them in assessing the progress that has been made since the earlier survey, as well as identifying new needs.

How libraries can help:
- print out and post the attached flyers or make copies available
- forward this information to community organizations that assist veterans
- if possible, put the link to the survey on their website thru 12/31/11

The survey is online at : 

A printable copy of the full survey is available at:
