Military.com has launched a new site for active duty and retired service women that will allow them to blog about their experiences and encourage a dialogue about all that goes along with being a female member of the armed forces.

The site is called CaptainMolly.com, in homage to Margaret Corbin, who was wounded in 1776 at a battle in New York while firing a cannon. She later became the first woman to receive a pension from the U.S. government for her military service.

The site also features “Molly’s Follies,” where all “women warriors” can anonymously post their “funniest or most outrageous” experiences, according to Military.com editor Ward Carroll.

Carroll said the site makes sense, because women now account for about 20 percent of the nation’s forces.

“The front lines of war are fully gender integrated now, and we wanted a property that deals with the issues of female war fighting professionals in real and complete terms,” Carroll said in a statement Thursday announcing the launch.

Sarah Blansett, editor of CaptainMolly, noted that women in the military “are no longer a novelty” and their experiences should be shared “not just with one another, but with the public as well.”
