Military Assault Cases

Leave a comment

The film on military assault cases was a really eye-opening thing for me to see. I knew this type of behavior occurred, but had no idea the extent to which these women are dehumanized. This is a prime example of the rape culture that exists in our society. To automatically assume that a woman is lying about being raped, abused, or assaulted, to barely examine her case, and then completely disregard her emotional and physical well being is absolutely disgusting. The military’s handling of this issue is a travesty. I hope this film and others help  to expose this problem so something can be done.
