Got Your 6 and MilTribe Honor Women Veterans with #ShesBadass Campaign
Throughout May MilTribe teamed up with veteran empowerment organization Got Your 6 to celebrate the accomplishments of women veterans during Military Appreciation Month. The social media campaign, #ShesBadass, focused on the women who served in the U.S. military and their impact in communities across the country.
“Women have played major roles in the military throughout our nation’s history, including in Iraq, Afghanistan,” said Iraq War veteran and Got Your 6 Director of Content Kate Hoit. ”Unfortunately, their accomplishments are often overlooked after they return to civilian life. By highlighting their service and their stories through #ShesBadass, we are helping to ensure they are not erased from our history.”
#ShesBadass was developed by Got Your 6 to call attention to the changing face of the American veteran. Women now total almost 11 percent of all veterans, including 20 percent of veterans under the age of 50.
“Partnering with Got Your 6, an organization that works tirelessly to ensure veterans are portrayed in the best and most accurate light, is an honor for us,” MilTribe CEO Tim Kaufeldt said. “We know women veterans are inspiring, bring great value to their employers and are incredibly goal oriented. We’re proud to support Got Your 6 and our women veterans through this campaign.”
