WTF is wrong with the Military, that this is still an issue? What is wrong with the "men" who rape these women, and what is wrong with the higher-ups who won't do anything about it?Lawsuit: Sexual assault of military women condoned by superiors
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (UPI) -- A lawsuit filed Tuesday by women who are serving or have served in the U.S. military charges their superiors ignored or belittled their complaints of sexual assault.
In court papers, the women describe rapes in war zones in Iraq and Afghanistan and gang rapes, NBC News reports. One woman, a naval aviator, said she was raped by two airmen two months ago.
Lawyer Susan Burke filed the lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Alexandria, Va.
