Abuse in the Military - "The Invisible War"

A groundbreaking and important film called "The Invisible War" will be shown at this year's Sundance Film Festival on January 20th.  The film examines the underreported epidemic of sexual assault in our US Military.  Based on my time in the military, I believe it.   "It is estimated that up to 30% of  women who serve in the U.S. Military have been raped by a fellow soldier.  Only 8% of these rapes are reported (so we can assume that the numbers are much higher).  Only 2% of reported rapes receive convictions"

You can learn more about the movie and contribute your own story on Twitter @Invisible_War and  You can also go to the Where is Your Line site on The Invisible War, Nancy Schwartzmann of The Line is the movie's Campaign and Advocacy Director.
