Military Secrets

Leave a comment

In class we watched a documentary that discussed rape and sexual harassment in the military. It was very eye opening documentary. These issues are something you do not hear much about, and that should be changed. To hear the stories of women in the military who were raped by their superiors and to know that little to know action was taken is shocking. It is such a shame that these women signed up to devote their time and energy to protect their country and the were disrespected in such a cruel way. I cannot imagine what it feels like for those women and how it affects their lives.I remember in particular  one women saying that she was charged with adultery because her superior accused of rape was married, even though she was not. That makes no sense at all! This is an issue that needs more awareness, more needs to be done to prevent these events from happening.
