Lioness is a 2008 documentary film directed by Meg McLagan and Daria Sommers[1][2] about the first members of Team Lioness. This documentary is about a group of female Army Support Soldiers. Together, they made American history being the first program ever to send women into direct ground combat. These five women fought in very rough conditions in the Iraq war. They served in Iraq for over a year. Later, they all returned home as heroes. This documentary is unique because it shows a women's point of view on the war: both emotional and psychological effects.[3]
