The film paints a startling picture of the extent of the problem—today, a female soldier in combat zones is more likely to be raped by a fellow soldier than killed by enemy fire. The Department of Defense estimates there were a staggering 22,800 violent sex crimes in the military in 2011. 20% of all active-duty female soldiers are sexually assaulted. Female soldiers aged 18 to 21 accounted for more than half of the victims." And the problem is not limited to female soldiers. It is estimated that 20,000 men in the military are sexually assaulted every year. The Soldier's House and CWC invites you to watch this moving documentary and participate in a panel discussion as part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month.
