Founded in 2007, the Service Women’s Action Network (SWAN) is the voice of all military women – past, present and future.
We are a member-driven community network advocating for the individual and collective needs of service women.
SWAN is guided by the priorities of our members, who include thousands of women and men, service members and civilians alike. We are committed to seeing that all service women receive the opportunities, protections, benefits and respect they deserve. Our goal is to ensure all service women have access to the information, tools and support they need to reach their personal and professional goals during and following their years of service.
Our mission is to be the nation’s most influential and effective network of service women, acting as their champion, advocate and best information resource.
To date, the Service Women’s Action Network has played a major role in shaping the outcome of many important issues effecting women in the service including opening all military jobs to service women, holding sex offenders accountable in the military justice system, eliminating barriers to disability claims for those who have experienced military sexual trauma, and expanding access to services for a broad range of reproductive healthcare services.
But our work has only just begun.
As the leading national organization dedicated to service women, the Service Women’s Action Network is a unique community enabling service women to connect and unite with their peers and create opportunities to improve their lives together. The SWAN community offers valuable programs that enable our members to get involved and work side-by-side to positively influence the issues that are important to them. From SWAN’s events around the country to our online community, we provide the only forum exclusively for service women, connecting them in ways never before possible and creating meaningful and powerful relationships that improves their lives. Sign up for SWAN’s mailing list and become a member of our growing community of service women and their supporters.
