The Women and Vietnam

March is Women’s History Month. Let’s take a moment to acknowledge the forgotten heroes of the Vietnam War- the women veterans. Approximately 10,000 women served in Vietnam as nurses, medical personnel, and military intelligence in the Army, Navy, and Air Force. Award-winning author Kristin Hannah‘s newest historical fiction, The Women, sheds light on the untold stories of these brave women. With a personal connection to this time in history, Kristin’s writing portrays notable moments from a woman’s point of view. Her previous works, including The Nightingale and Firefly Lane, have been widely acclaimed and adapted into major productions. Warner Bros has pre-bought The Women, and we can’t wait to see this incredible story come to life.

My conversation with Kristin Hannah, honoring the Vietnam women veterans and remembering that women can be heroes too.
