The Invisible War

Where there are groups with power, there is abuse of that power. In this case, we're talking about the USA military, and The Invisible War.

You know the one. The one where women get raped, but nothing happens because it is the people in power who are either the rapists, know the rapists, or don't want to admit to there being rapist. And if you don't know, this movie will tell you as we see many women's stories. (And yes, a few from the men as well.) Why the hell is there so many stories? What the hell is going wrong here?

Actually, as I've already said, it's about power, and powerlessness. Which is what the women feel. Certainly from the numbers given here, you aren't feeling cheery by the end of it. From the looks of the wiki page, there has been some changes because of it... too little too late? Maybe. (I do wonder what publishing names would do for this...)

Not an easy movie to watch, but definitely one of those ones that shine a much needed light.
