Sexual harassment and assault at US military academies report [US DOD]

Sexual Harassment & Violence at the Military Service Academies Report, United States Department of Defense, August 25, 2005 [report announcing that despite some progress, hostile attitudes and inappropriate treatment of women persist at the US Military Academy at West Point and the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland]. Excerpt:

Both the Naval and the Military Academies have made progress in addressing these issues over the last several years. The Academies need resources and support from the Services, DoD, and Congress to ensure success. The changes in law identified by this Task Force are a step in that direction; good-faith efforts to implement Task Force recommendations, as well as continued surveys and oversight, will keep the Academies moving forward.
