Women Who Serve
Watch this video and decide what your own responsibility is to those who serve and have served. These two women are speaking about women who have experienced sexual trauma while serving on the battlefield, and that rape was not perpetrated by the enemy, but rather by someone serving beside her. It is about the response of leadership to what happened to them, the injustice they encounter, and why. Think about how many news stories you have ever heard or seen in main stream media that are about a woman being raped while serving in Iraq or Afghanistan. This tragedy of war is seldom spoke of, even by it's victims, most of whom never receive justice.
