Sexual Assault Reports In Military Rise in 2014

According to a recent Pentagon report, there is still a lot of work that needs to be done to eliminate sexual assault within the military.

In 2014 alone there were 6000 cases of sexual reported. This is 8% more than the number of cases reported in 2013, and 66% higher than the 2012 numbers. This is the result of a combination of more incidents and more and more victims coming forward.

There has been a strong political push for more accountability from the military in order to eliminate the assaults and implement a zero tolerance policy of the violations.
