A question for the Commander in Chief from Elizabeth Warren


Here is Elizabeth’s question:

Mr. President, you honor women serving in the armed forces in every speech you give. But the truth is that one in three enlisted women is sexually assaulted while serving her country. According to a CBS report, in 2007 less than 12 percent of sexual assault investigations led to prosecution. With such a low rate of prosecution it follows that, according to the Pentagon, 80% of military sexual assaults are never reported. As Commander in Chief, what are you doing to both prevent and prosecute military rape?
