    received this message today --- hope it is okay for me to share this here:

    Our bipartisan fight to address sexual assault in the military just took a big step forward with the Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee announcing he will hold a full committee hearing on this crisis on June 4th.

    This on the heels of yet another disturbing instance of sexual misconduct in our military. A sergeant first class at West Point Academy in New York was found to have been secretly videotaping female cadets, sometimes when they were in the shower.

    It is disgusting. We must do better by those brave enough to wear the uniform. Last night I talked about the need for reform on NBC. I hope you’ll watch and add your voice.

    Click here to watch the video, and add your voice to the petition demanding the Senate reform the military justice system to protect the women and men who serve.

    This has to end. I am determined to use every opportunity I have to demand action until this gets done.

    Thanks for your support,

    Kirsten
