The Ministry of Defense is taking a stand against rape with their controversial new ad campaign. Photographs in the posters depict men and women who have been raped by soldiers in the army, reminding service personnel that consent is always required before having sex.

The campaign was initiated by the head of the army -- General Sir Nick Carter -- after conversation about sexual offending in the military became popular.

This is the first time that the armed forces have launched a campaign aimed at rape and sexual assault.
