Women In the Service

Leave a comment

In class, when I first saw the film..I was trying to figure out what exactly it was about. I mean there was just a bunch of women in different branches of the military who enjoyed being in the service…but, there was a twist. These women had been raped. The sad part about these stories were that officers who were suppose to be supportive– questioned if what happened to the victims was true or not. The part that hit home with me is that one woman’s father was crying. It made me think of my dad, for some reason. The father handled the situation well. Also, one abusive rape incident effected a mother to spend time with her child. In certain weather she could not go outside due to how bad she was smacked. It was good that film showed how the man was raped, by doing that shows that men deal with the same problems as well.
