Sexual Assault in the Military

leave a comment »

Tuesday, the Department of Defense released a new report on sexual assault in the military. Those of us who do this work won’t find the results particularly shocking (no glibness intended in that statement), but they are disturbing, nonetheless. Tuesday night CBS Evening News did a report on the story. You can watch the video here. Wednesday, they followed up with a piece on whether US military policies endanger female soldiers (clip and story here).

To watch the video of the official DoD briefing on the report, follow this link (warning: it’s 42+ minutes). You can also visit the SAPR site to read the reports: both the full DoD report as well as the reports from the different branches.
