This hard-hitting film is the first to cover the shocking story of sexual harassment and rape of American female soldiers. The Pentagon acknowledges that it received more than three thousand reports of sexual mistreatment in 2006 alone. These female soldiers were not attacked by the combat enemies, but rather by colleagues and supervisors in their own platoons.
Though the number of reported sexual assaults has skyrocketed over the past several years, the number of convictions has remained static: only 2 percent of accused rapists are ever court-martialed. The combined trauma of sexual abuse and combat appears to bear correlation to the results of a 2008 RAND study, which indicate that female veterans suffer twice the rate of depression and post-traumatic stress disorder as their male counterparts.
