    Nasawiya and No Rights No Women should work and march together not separately.. Why do we like to stay divided in this country? Unity is power!!!

    In hopes of gaining support for the rights of Women Veterans who have suffered from Sexual Assault, Im asking for your help with this petition. After a woman is raped she may be pushed out of the military and branded a trouble maker. She may be denied services like necessary health care or even the ability to seek justice against her attacker. This is what happened to me and 3 others in my unit. Out of only 13 females in my unit, 5 were attacked, 4 were forced out and one was raped on more than one occasion. Those of us who were forced out now have no VA benefits while our attackers get the GI Bill to pay for their education, VA benefits for buying a home and are free to enjoy all the benefits of a military career. It is not fair and there is so much work to be done, I am choosing to start here but this will not be the end for me. I will not stop this fight until there is a fair and just military for women to serve in as EQUALS and not be treated as DISPOSABLE OBJECTS. We are human beings, we have rights. Please help me to ensure that those rights are respected.

    Please share the following link and help get as many signatures on this petition as possible. Thank you, from all of us, thank you.
