12 p.m. - Panelist on Military Women, at Risk from Fellow Soldiers
Parallel event for the United Nations Commission on Status of Women
Contact Ellen Barfield
Militaries have violent missions. Members are trained in state-sponsored and state-regulated violence toward persons in other countries. However, violence all too often is turned on fellow military members, their own families and their communities. Sexual harassment, sexual assault, domestic violence and murder are tragic and criminal aspects of military life. Despite Congressional mandates for senior military leadership to implement programs to stop these criminal acts, they continue unabated. Citizen organizations such as Service Women’s Action Network and Protect our Defenders provide assistance to survivors. Veterans For Peace members speak in high schools about the dangers of military service. Panelists-all veterans: Ellen Barfield, Adrienne Kinne, Natasha Erskine and Ann Wright all from Veterans For Peace and Lory Manning of Service Womens Action Network.
