Janet Napolitano Speaks Out About Sex Abuse of Women in Military

Posted By on Mon, Apr 30, 2007 at 8:31 AM

Three cheers for Janet Napolitano and Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius for speaking out on the sexual abuse and rape that women in the military face in Iran and Afghanistan. These women soldiers are not dealing with sex abuse from the enemy but rather from the military, higher ranking officers and fellow soldiers. 

War is hell in more ways than one for women.

Napolitano and Sebelius have requested that Defense Secretary Robert Gates launch an immediate and comprehensive investigation into the treatment of U.S. women in combat. 

I wonder how high on the pecking order (pun intended) Gates will feel this request is?

A March 2007 story in The New York Times Magazine was the impetus for her request.
