If troops from another country invaded American military bases and sexually assaulted tens of thousands of american service men and women, our response would be instant, all-out war.
But when sexual predators and abuswrs within America's own military done exactly the same thing, the response - for years - has been to pretend that nothing was happening.
But now—thankfully—finally - that's starting to change.
Our guest today survived sexual trauma as a young sailor in the US Navy. And by telling her story, and joining with others to do so, she has awakened the conscience and outrage of a nation. Now, she's taking her case to Congress--and America's elected leaders are rushing to respond.
Today's show is intense. But stay with us and you'll hear a story of hope.
