Movie Info

Official U.S. policy dictates that female soldiers are forbidden from engaging in direct ground combat, and in this documentary filmmakers Meg McLagen and Daria Sommers explore the reasons why the women of Team Lioness were dispatched on missions with all male combat units during the Iraq War. Despite the fact that these brave heroines received almost no combat training before being deployed to Iraq on non-combat duty, they played a crucial role in diffusing tensions with local civilians while frequently becoming caught up in deadly ground skirmishes. With this film, McLagen and Sommers pay tribute to the unsung women of war who risked their lives for the cause of freedom yet received virtually no public recognition for their bravery and sacrifice.
