19-37 Segment 2: One Woman’s Account of Sexual Assault in the U.S. Army


Ryan Leigh Dostie, author of Formation: A Woman’s Memoir of Stepping Out of Line, enlisted in the Army after graduating from high school and was deployed to Iraq shortly after finishing her training. In 2002, while abroad, she was raped while sleeping in her Army barracks. What followed was a series of victim-blaming tactics and unfair bias directed towards her by those in charge. Dostie spoke with Viewpoints Radio about her experience and how she found the strength to move on.
