Five women share their stories of breaking barriers, overcoming odds, and surviving wars. Well Arts Institute is partnering with Returning Veterans Project and Wise Counsel and Comfort to present Breaking Ranks, written by female service veterans. The play will explore the experiences of women in the U.S. Armed Forces: some have survived tours of duty in combat zones, some cope with military sexual trauma, all of them share what it was for them to be living and working in a male dominated environment.
