MEDFORD, Ore. -- Anybody can attend a dinner tonight dedicated to honoring women in the armed forces. There will be live music, door prizes, speakers and the opportunity to see an exhibition that shows the diversity of women veterans.

Elizabeth Estabrooks is presenting the 'I Am Not Invisible' exhibition. She is an army veteran and hopes the project will increase awareness about women veterans and their needs and experiences. She says woman veterans face many barriers when trying to access services and get less recognition than male vets.

"When people think about veterans generally it's that white male default. People assume men are veterans and they assume woman are not. So people often times they don't think about women as as veterans. Even when woman are wearing veteran gear," Estabrooks says.

There are 28,000 female veterans in Oregon. The exhibit showcases portraits of 20 diverse women vets from all over Oregon. 

"We wanted it to represent the diversity of woman veterans so woman of color, transgender woman veteran, lesbian, rural woman veterans, women from the Vietnam era. The youngest was 26 at the time and oldest was 101," says Estabrooks.

If you would like to go tonight or tomorrow to show your support, you can RSVP on this website: www.roguecc.edu/military-women.

Monday night's dinner and exhibit will be in Grants Pass at the Redwood Campus from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday night's dinner and exhibit showing will be at Rogue Community College in the cafeteria from 6 p. m. to 8 p.m.
