Domestic Violence and the Military

A disturbing article in this Sunday’s New York Times revealed one woman’s story of dealing with domestic violence through the military channels. We have recently blogged about sexual abuse in the military. Though these occurrences are highly upsetting, it’s encouraging to see that the media is helping to shed light on these issues.

  2. Unfortunately this woman’s story is all too common. The military culture teaches people to solve problems with violence and to dehumanize others so domestic violence, sexual harassment, and sexual assault are not only wide spread, but accepted. Thanks for keeping these issues in people’s awareness. We can’t claim to “support our troops” as long as we tolerate these form of mistreatment.
