Military Sexual Assault
Sexual assault is a pervasive problem in the United States, including in the Armed Forces. Public beliefs and attitudes about sexual assault lead
to complacency and acceptance of a “rape culture” in the United States where rape is normalized, excused, tolerated, and even condoned. This
acceptance creates an environment that makes it nearly impossible for sexual assault victims, in both the military and civilian systems, to obtain
justice and discourages them from reporting and seeking help.
