What you can do to help

Beyond reading the book and becoming educated you can help by:

Calling and writing your Congressional Representative and U.S. Senator and letting them know you are appalled by what you read and learned about the culture of abuse toward women in the U.S. Military and the rampant sexual assault to both male and female service members.

Be strong and firm and tell them “YOU must put a stop to this!”
It is their responsibility to listen to you and do their job.

Be specific and tell them Congress must insist that our military:

  1. Hold Offenders Accountable
  2. Punish Criminal Behavior especially Military Sexual Assault
  3. Eliminate the criminal element in our military
  4. Take reporting sexual assault OUT of the Chain of Command, regardless of what military leaders tell them.  Our military leaders have lost their credibility in sexual assault cases.

Finally, if you want to help me continue to travel and speak out to end this culture of abuse toward women in our military you can donate right here.

" Sarah Blum’s book, Women Under Fire, is a stunning revelation of sexual abuse in the U.S. Armed Forces. As Blum's book makes scathingly clear, this criminal activity--demeaning, degrading and despicable--is far too prevalent in each of the armed services. Action is needed—comprehensive, effective and swift—before sexual abuse rips out the very heart of the military." (Lawrence Wilkerson, Colonel, US Army (Retired), former chief of staff to secretary of state Colin Powell, and Distinguished Visiting Professor of Government and Public Policy at the College of William and Mary)
