NYT’s Editorial on Servicewomen's Struggle to Obtain Treatment Following Sexual Assault
New York Times editorial: Justice for Women Veterans:
Women in the military who are sexually assaulted or harassed face obstacles not seen in the civilian workplace. They can’t decide to take time off or quit, often have no way to avoid a predatory colleague or supervisor, and certainly in combat zones, no way to visit the human resources department. They often work in a culture that has long tolerated misogynistic behavior. And they can be further traumatized by the indifference or hostility of the bureaucracy that is supposed to help them. . . .
