"From Oscar®-and Emmy®-nominated filmmaker Kirby Dick comes The Invisible
War, a groundbreaking investigative documentary about one of America’s most
shameful and best kept secrets: the epidemic of rape within the U.S.
military. 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.
