Women Under Fire, PPB

Price: $18.95


By Sarah Blum

"Women Under Fire: Abuse in the Military is a hard look at the extraordinary culture of violence and intimidation committed every day in the US military. Women Under Fire: Abuse in the Military should be required reading by those considering joining the military and by the friends and relatives who encourage young women and men to join the military. These stories stand as warnings to think carefully about joining an organization that has a long history of protecting criminals who commit sexual crimes." --Retired Colonel Ann Wright

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.
