Meet Major General Anderson, the first African-American woman with two stars in the Army or Army Reserve, to earn the rank of Major General in the 237-year history of the U.S. Army.

On Thursday, General Anderson went to the Joint Forces Training Base in Los Alamitos, California to speak to soldiers about women’s equality in the military.

“Currently, and I’m very proud of this fact, women serve in 93 percent of all army occupations, and women comprise 13.5 percent of the active army,” Anderson said.

Anderson spoke in advance of Women’s Equality Day on Aug. 26, which was founded by the late politician and feminist icon Bella Abzug.

“She was the first Jewish woman to be elected to the House of Representatives,” Anderson said. “One of her famous quotes is, ‘Women belong in the house. The House of Representatives.’”

Soldiers from Los Alamitos and Riverside soaked it all in.
