Ann Wright is a retired United States Army colonel and official of the U.S. State Department, known for her outspoken opposition to the Iraq War. She received the State Department Award for Heroism in 1997, after helping to evacuate several thousand people during the civil war in Sierra Leone. She is most noted for having been one of three State Department officials to publicly resign in direct protest of the March 2003 invasion of Iraq. Since that time the Colonel has become an international star in the PEACE AND JUSTICE COMMUNITY.

She has led the way to opening discussions on sexual assault in the military. She has become an inspiration to many women who have faced rape, assault and degradation at the hands of fellow soldiers.
