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.

Inspiring Movie
13 September 2017 | by rustyfosterSee all my reviews

Candid and Raw interviews. Emotional and Inspiring stories... are just a few words that come to mind to describe this movie. This documentary follows different women throughout their different lives, but the one thing they have in common is that they're women that served our country and they're heroes and should be treated as such. You get a glimpse into the real life traumas - both physical and mental - that these ladies suffer through on a daily basis. I want to and I need to see this movie again, so that I'm able to better understand the challenges these ladies, aka heroes, deal with daily. This movie will make you laugh, cry, angry, and feel for each person. The filming team did an amazing job capturing the true emotion and essence of each lady. This is a must see movie hands down.
