One of the things I hate most about the world/media today, is how almost all things are advertized by inappropriately using the image of a Woman’s body. Media now use a Woman’s body to sell gum, video games, cars, etc. All which have nothing to do with a Woman’s body. It’s disgusting and demeaning. Not only that, they alter these images to a unrealistic reality - causing Woman AND Girls to harm and disrespect their bodies. Ugh, OK. That’s my vent for the day. Watch the video if you agree!
THE INVISIBLE WAR is a groundbreaking investigative documentary about one of our country’s most shameful and best kept secrets: the epidemic of rape within our US military. Today, a female soldier in Iraq and Afghanistan is more likely to be raped by a fellow soldier than killed by enemy fire with the number of assaults in the last decade alone in the hundreds of thousands.
Focusing on the powerfully emotional stories of several young women, the film reveals the systemic cover up of the crimes against them and follows their struggles to rebuild their lives and fight for justice. THE INVISIBLE WAR features hard-hitting interviews with high-ranking military officials and members of Congress that reveal the perfect storm conditions that exist for rape in the military, its history of cover-up, and what can be done to bring about much needed change.
It’s hard enough to watch the trailer; please don’t read the comments.
Another thing I’ve learned: listen when people tell you not to read the comments.
