At the beginning of this month, the Pentagon released a report on sexual assault in the military. Below is the response of the Service Women's Action Network (SWAN). SWAN is a national, nonpartisan organization and member-driven community network advocating for the individual and collective needs of service women.
To date, SWAN has played a major role in
- opening all military jobs to service women
- holding sex offenders accountable in the military justice system
- eliminating barriers to disability claims for those who have experienced military sexual trauma
- expanding access to a broad range of reproductive healthcare services for military women
