SEXUAL TRAUMA - WHILE  SERVING IN THE MILITARY

Warning: Study says 1 in 3 Women RAPED in the Military

source: American Journal of Industrial Medicine
by A.G. Sadler, et al.

American Journal of Industrial Medicine, 43:262-273 (2003). Important, 

The view of women as sexual prey rather than as responsible adults has always been part of military culture. Women today are indispensable to the military. Nevertheless, one woman soldier observed: "There are only three things the guys let you be if you're a girl in the military - a bitch, a ho, or a dyke." Not all military men see women soldiers this way, but too many do. The hostility is shown by undermining women's authority, denying promotions, denigrating their work, sexual harassment, sexual assault and rape.
