Women in the Military

Leave a comment

On Thursday, we watched the first half of a documentary about women in the military. This documentary brought to light a major issue that truly needs to be addressed more thoroughly. The fact that women are getting raped by the people they work with everyday is very off-putting. What is even more ridiculous is the fact that the perpetrators were not being punished for their actions! The military was giving the excuse that rape was an, “occupational hazard.” I find this absolutely absurd. Women should not have to be in fear when they are among their coworkers. We need to stop making excuses for the men in the military because women deserve to be respected in their occupations.
