The Huffington Post
“The issue of sexual violence in the military is not new. And it has been allowed to go on in the shadows for far too long," Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., the subcommittee chair, said in her opening statement. She called the military justice system dysfunctional, noting that less than one out of 10 reported attackers are held accountable. The Department of Defense estimates that military sexual assault claimed 19,000 victims in fiscal year 2011 — more than 50 per day.
