War is hell. More so for women in the military than men however!
Because the military has long been considered a macho organization mainly comprised of men, women who enter it today face a gender bias and mistreatment.
This has been true for decades. Because they chose to live in this macho culture, they pay the price for serving their country.
Fourteen current and former members of the U.S. military were charged in a lawsuit filed today. They believe the Pentagon turned a blind eye when they reported being sexually harassed, assaulted and raped by fellow service members while on active duty.
“I felt completely isolated and alone and really scared. Here I was, in the middle of a foreign country in the middle of a war,' plaintiff in lawsuit tells NBC News.”
