Latest Military Sexual Assault Report Shows ‘Tragic’ Rise in Cases, Pentagon Officials Say


Recommended Posts

THE PENTAGON — One in 10 female sailors experienced unwanted sexual contact in Fiscal Year 2021, one of the worst rates among the service branches, according to the Department of Defense’s annual Sexual Assault and Prevention Report released on Thursday.

That’s an increase from 7.5 percent of female sailors in FY 2018, according to slides from a DoD briefing Thursday afternoon. FY 2021 saw 2.1 percent of male sailors experiencing unwanted sexual contact, the worst among the military branches, not including the Coast Guard, which is not part of the report. The 2.1 percent is an increase from 1 percent in FY 2018, the last year the survey was conducted.
