7:45 PM: Panel discussion

According to www.notinvisible.org: Today, a woman serving in Iraq or Afghanistan is more likely to be raped by a fellow service member than to be killed in the line of fire. The Department of Defense estimates there were 22,800 violent sex crimes in the military in 2011. 20% of all active-duty female soldiers are sexually assaulted. Female soldiers aged 18 to 21 accounted for more than half of the victims.

RSVP to reserve your seat today! Register here or email ced@stsm.org. There will be a suggested $5 donation to Sexual Trauma Services of the Midlands at the door.

This event is made possible through sponsorship from USC's Women's and Gender Studies program and USC's Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures.

Please note that there will be counselors from Sexual Trauma Services of the Midlands available throughout the evening.
