Abstract:

In this report, four Marines tell their stories of sexual assault and harassment, lending detail and dimension to what is more often only reported in statistical form. These Marines focus on the deliberations that go into whether or not they chose to report their assault or harassment, as well as the personal and social impacts of reporting an assault. I also provide secondhand accounts of assault and perspectives on the topic from other Marines. I draw out the common threads among the stories and perspectives presented here in order to identify areas that need further attention, either in the form of more research or interventions and preventative measures.
