In March 2017, She Went to War opened at The Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis. She Went to War  is new work by The Telling Project, an autobiographical performance by four female veterans, all of whom, in widely varying capacities, experienced significant combat exposure during their terms in the military. Their stories speak to and for many, many more women whose roles put them in the line of fire. SWTW will be an opportunity for the American public to understand and acknowledge the distinctive and important roles women have played on the battlefield.

“She Went to War has no ideology but a clear-eyed sense of purpose: that of educating civilians about the experience of women in combat zones.”
