Eassy 62 (The Private war of Women Soldiers)
April 12, 2012 § 1 Comment
While reading the private war of women soldiers I was immediately shocked about this issue. Why have we never really herd of this problem women soldiers are facing? Why, because if they were to tell anyone they would just get told to suck it up because the one they probably were telling were guilty for sexually assaulting a women as well. It was a women’s word vs. mans word and women were in the minority in this situation.
It was said in this chapter that it is hard to see if rape during war is increasing or decreasing or whether there are more or less people reporting it happening. Yet these women still have to return home after war not suffering from the effect of war but the effect of being raped. Often times killing themselves and or being emotionally numb to relate to their families and children.
I understand that men and women during war are away from there loved ones for along time but is rape the answer to your problems. Why is it that men are treating their women coworkers as a victim as well? Why are these male soldiers treating the enemy in such a degrading way? Is it necessary for them to make them masturbate in front of them and walk around naked? Is the power going straight to these men’s heads?
