Recently, I went to the Veterans For Peace convention in Maryland and attended some very interesting workshops. The workshop that has angered and resonated the most with me was the Military Sexual Trauma workshop. I am angry that this workshop has to be held. I am angry that 1 in 3 women are raped by their brother in arms. I am angry that many female soldiers have died and will die during the Iraq and Afghanistan conflict of dehydration because they refuse to drink enough water so they will not have to go to the bathroom during the night and be ganged raped by American soldiers.
