Storyline

Director Lysa Heslov's documentary, "Served Like a Girl, provides a candid look at several American women as they transition from active duty to civilian life after serving tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan. Our wounded U.S. female service personnel often return to a stark reality, one that is rarely discussed or considered. Struggling with PTSD, homelessness, broken families, serious illness, physical injuries, and the aftermath of military sexual abuse, these amazing women find ways to adapt and overcome debilitating challenges through participation in the "Ms. Veteran America" competition. Guided by event founder and veteran, Jas Boothe, the women leverage their experiences gained through competition to recover the parts of themselves and their personal identities they had lost on the battlefield. Called "Engaging, Honest and Powerful," this film is a beautiful tapestry interlaced with poignant moments, social commentary, and humor.

An Extremely Moving Film about the Lives of Female Vets
14 March 2017 | by JustCuriositySee all my reviews

Served Like a Girl was extremely well-received during its world premiere at Austin's SXSW Film Festival. It is a beautifully directed and edited film describing the compelling experiences of four women veterans who compete in the Ms. Veteran America contest. The contest is held each year to raise money for homeless women veterans. Their stories are compelling and patriotic. The film is a wonderful statement about the need to treat women as equals in society in general and in the military in particular. It also points out despite the policy under which until recently many women were not officially serving in combat, many actually served in virtually the identical combat roles as men. This is a compelling and powerful film about an under reported subject. They also faced additional traumas such as sexual abuse in a male dominated environment. Despite the heaviness of much of the narrative, the first time director managed to make the film remarkably humorous by finding the funny stories from their lives. It makes the film much easier and much more human than it would have otherwise been. I hope this film is widely distributed, because these important stories deserve a wider audience.
