What’s At Stake Today

The military health care system does not guarantee women service members or dependents of service members the health care coverage now available to civilian women and dependents under the Affordable Care Act. Military women and men are also not entitled to equal family leave for the birth or adoption of a child, and military pregnancy policies need improvements. The military child care system, while in many respects a model for the nation, needs additional resources.

What is NWLC Doing?

We advocate for legislation to improve health care coverage for military women and dependents, for changes in leave policies for child birth and adoption for both military women and military men, for improvements in military pregnancy policies, and for additional resources for military child care.
