Women Victims of Rape in the Military

Oct 26, 2011

Sat. 10/15 12p: Former Marine Corps Captain Anu Bhagwati is bringing national attention to the high price women pay to serve our country. 

Bhagwati's leadership of the  Service Women's Action Network (SWAN) is sparking a demand to end  military rape, sexual assault, sexual harassment and domestic violence.  She has testified before Congress and advised the White House about challenges faced by women due to policies on Women in Combat Exclusion; Don't Ask, Don't Tell; Military Sexual Trauma and health care of veterans. She spoke to Susan Loubet for Women's Focus just after giving her perspective on Women Participating in War at this year's JAWS (Journalism and Women Symposium) conference.
