To see the profound impact of women in the workforce, look to the military. From combat roles to generals to executive positions in the defense industry, women are challenging the status quo in national security. Rep. Kay Granger (R-TX) is seeing this firsthand in her district. In her latest op-ed published on Military.com, she highlights the women who are living testaments to the vital role they play in making our country safe and the challenges they face.
“These women leaders took on some of the toughest challenges in the defense industry and have brought practical, successful solutions to make their companies, and our nation, stronger,” says Granger. “We are counting on these women to provide the tools for our national security, and I applaud them for their achievements and inspiration. They are proving that gender is not an issue in our modern world; what matters is what you do with the opportunities given to you.”
