Some women veterans don't join veteran service organizations because of a culture they say continues to marginalize them. Some say reports of sexual violence continue to be mishandled in the military. Leaders behind a new project say it's time to talk openly about all of it.

We talk with some of the Indiana women leading the effort to find out what they want changed, and how it could happen.
