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. While tackling a topic that is little known or thought of, our wounded U.S. female service personnel often return to a stark reality. 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 American” 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 also a beautiful tapestry woven with poignant moments, social commentary and humor.
