1. Veteran Feminists of America
Veteran Feminists of America is a non-profit organization based in Phoenix, Arizona, United States, for veterans of the Second Wave of the feminist movement. It was founded by Jacqueline Ceballos in 1992 and models the Veterans of Foreign Wars organization. Veteran Feminists of America regularly hosts reunions for second wave feminists and events honoring feminist leaders. Group member Linda Stein and two other Veteran Feminists of America representatives appeared in the 2006 film Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, having been hoodwinked into believing that Borat Sagdiyev, who interviewed them in Stein's Manhattan sculpture studio in 2005, was a journalist for Belarus Television. Judith Meuli designed the Veteran Feminists of America pin and medal of honor.
