Military Response to Sexual Violence

by United State of Women | Updated on 5.4.18

Learn more, and take action above or below.


Reform the military justice system to ensure that all service members receive the protections afforded civilian survivors of crimes and civilians accused of crimes.







Solutions:

– Improve sexual harassment prevention efforts.

– Give service members the same process for reporting and securing a response to complaints of sexual harassment and other forms of discrimination that is afforded to civilian employees of the Department of Defense.

– Reexamine the records of survivors of sexual assault receiving other than honorable discharges, to ensure that the discharge decision appropriately took into consideration the extenuating role that sexual assault played in the conduct that led to the discharge.

– Monitor progress in combatting the high incidence of sexual harassment and sexual assault in the Armed forces, including in the military service academies.
