Military Sexual Assaults Spike Despite Efforts To Combat Epidemic @invisible_war #US #military #rape

As a sexual assault victim advocate for the military please allow me to simply point out a statistical fact: a rise in numbers of reports does not necessarily equal a rise in actual incidents of sexual assault. For our community this actually tells us that our efforts towards encouraging soldiers to report sexual assault as opposed to keep it detrimentally to themselves are working... Sexual assault in the military is a huge problem, but the fact our number of reports has risen does not automatically mean that the problem has gotten worse. The programs put in place to combat sexual assault and assist survivors are manned by caring people who spend everyday fighting to erase the 'good ol boys' network so often discussed and encourage our survivors of every age, race, gender, rank, and sexual orientation to seek the help they need and the justice they deserve.
