    The National Alliance of Women Veterans is a Philadelphia-based, non-profit, public charity, 501 (c)3 tax-exmpt organization.

    NAWV INC is an organization that addresses issues relating to women who have served in the armed forces. The organization comprises women from the Iraq War to those who have served in World War II, who, many are are our honorary members and advisors.  

    We are pleased with the work that has been done through our advocacy and outreach.  For the past 18 years military sexual assault is an issue that was passionately and aggressively fought through legislation and policies at every government level; Veterans Affairs, Senate and House Subcommittees. We are presently involved in the filing of Case Number CA CV 11-151 MST Class Action Lawsuit, filed on February 15th, 2011 in Federal Court in Virginia.  Susan Burke, LLC law firm and consultants have been aggressive in bringing the lawsuit to the attention to all concerned.  The 15 individuals who are named in the lawsuit include two males.  Please find more information at 

    Founder and Executive Director, Cathy Santos gave testimony to the House Committee on Veterans Affairs in 1993.  There she addressed military sexual assault and health care at VA medical centers that resulted in women veterans clinics being instituted in VA hospitals throughout the United States and is archived in the Library of Congress.
