Women Under Fire: Abuse in the Military describes the culture of abuse toward women in the U.S. Military including stories of servicewomen from WWII to Iraq and Afghanistan.
It includes facts, figures, stories, and a call to action with specific recommendations to Congress and the Military to provide effective compassionate care and justice to victims plus accountability for perpetrators. This book clearly identifies the issues and what needs to be done to restore the honor and integrity of our military in relation to our women under fire.
Comprehensive and effective action is needed before the abuse culture destroys our military.

Praise for Women Under Fire

"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.

I commend the author, Sarah Blum, for her thoughtful and insightful treatise on changes to the system that will lead to fewer sexual assaults and justice for future victims.
