Independent Lens

Lioness

Episode Guide »
How did five female Army support soldiers -- mechanics, supply clerks and engineers -- end up fighting alongside the Marines in some of the bloodiest counterinsurgency battles of the Iraq War? Directors Meg McLagan and Daria Sommers give viewers an intimate look at war through the eyes of the first women in U.S. history sent into direct ground combat, despite a policy that bans them from doing so. Through harrowing personal stories, these women candidly share their experiences in Iraq as well as experiences from their lives back home to form a portrait of the emotional and psychological effects of war.
