Cases of ‘sexual harassment’ continue to increase within the ‘US Army’, which is considered one of the most powerful in the world. The Associated Press said a US military report showed a 13% increase in “sexual assaults” over the past year. In a confidential survey, 36,000 service members said they had experienced “unwanted sexual contact”. According to US defense and military officials, this time there has been an increase of more than 20,000 such cases.

He said a similar survey was also done in 2018, but this time the number is the highest after 2013. Capitol Hill “legislators” have expressed displeasure with the new number. Also criticized the “Pentagon” for not being able to control sex crimes.

The Pentagon publishes an annual report on the number of sexual assaults reported by soldiers. In fact, fewer reports of crimes like sexual harassment are being reported, so the department began conducting a confidential survey once every two years to find out the reality of this problem.
