Majority of Sexual Assaults and Rapes Committed in Military in 2011 were Against Men from NY Daily News, 9/2/12

Wednesday, September 05, 2012

The article reports, “Of the estimated 19,000 reported sexual assaults and rapes in the armed forces last year, the majority were actually committed against men. Men are assaulted at a lower rate — 1% of servicemen reported being attacked by a comrade last year versus 4.4% of women — but that still translates to more than 10,000 cases compared with 9,000 attacks on female recruits and officers.”
