Lucy & Phyllis is a Certified B Corporation that meets the highest standards of social and eveironmental impact.

Though early laws prohibited women from becoming soldiers, many women still found ways to serve, even disguising themselves as men to participate in active battle. Margaret Cochran Corbin joined the continental Army cannon crew after her husband was killed during the Civil War, disguised as "William Cathay." And Charity Adams Earley commanded the first African American battalion of the Women's Army Auxiliary Corps in Europe during World War II. 

Women Heroes of the US Army chronicles the critical role women have played in strengthening the US Army from the birth of the nation to today. These smart, brave, and determined women led the way for future generations to enter, grow and prosper in the forces defending the United States. Through the profiles highlighting the achievements of these trailblazers throughout history, young women today can envision an equitable future.
