In celebration of National Women’s History Month, the United States Army Heritage and Education Center (USAHEC) will live-stream a lecture and panel discussion with retired U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Mari K. Eder based on her soon-to-be-published book, The Girls Who Stepped Out of Line: The Untold Stories of the Women Who Changed the Course of World War II. The event will be held on 10 March 2021 at 12:00PM EST and can be viewed by visiting https://www.armywarcollege.edu/live. National Women’s History Month provides an opportunity to observe and celebrate the vital role of women in American history.
In her upcoming book, Eder will take you inside the lives and experiences of the unknown heroes from the Greatest Generation. These women served, fought, struggled, and made things happen during WWII―in and out of uniform, creating a legacy destined to encourage generations of women to come. In her lecture, she will provide a compelling glimpse into the foundations of her book, including what inspired her to tell these women’s stories. Following the lecture, a panel including Carlisle Barracks Garrison Commander LTC Courtney Short, the Army War College (AWC)’s Peacekeeping & Stability Operations Institute’s Professor Dr. Karen Finkenbinder, and 2021 AWC Class President COL Shari Bennett, will provide their own unique perspectives, as well as further discussion of women as leaders and advocates for change in the U.S. military.
The lecture can be viewed at https://www.armywarcollege.edu/live. A live Question and Answer session will follow the lecture and panelist discussion. Online viewers can participate in the question and answer portion of the presentation by emailing questions to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by direct messaging the USAHEC on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/USAHEC).
Eder is a renowned speaker, author, and a thought leader on strategic communication and leadership. She has served as Director of Public Affairs at the George C. Marshall European Center for Security Studies and as an adjunct professor and lecturer in communications and public diplomacy at the NATO School and Sweden’s International Training Command. She is the author of numerous case studies and articles on military ethics, leadership, and strategic communications.
