Sexual assault in the military: we need to be more like Israel


At the end of last year, the Department of Defense prepared a 100-plus pageReport to the President of the United States on Sexual Assault Prevention and Response. I skimmed the whole darn thing. I learned April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month in the military. Did you know that?

For as much time and resource that was clearly put into this report, you would think sexual assault in the military would be at epic proportions, or as Senator Kirsten Gillibrand called it, an “epidemic.”

Except it’s not. In fact, it has actually gone down.

What percentage of women in the military do you think is sexually assaulted? Twenty percent? Thirty percent?
