Helen Benedict Wins EMMA Award

"Thanks again to all the women soldiers," was Helen's response to winning the 2010 National Women's Political Caucus Exceptional Merit in Media Award (EMMA) for her book, The Lonely Soldier: The Private War of Women Serving in Iraq (Beacon Press, 2009) and a related article in Ms. magazine.

The judges noted, "As a result of Helen Benedict's provocative article, and subsequent book, The Lonely Soldier, the stories of women in the military who have faced sexual assaults, harassment and discrimination now have a voice."
