“I can honestly wholeheartedly say that during the five days I spent at Tassajara last year, I  had more remarkable healing… than I have had in six years of therapy… “  ~ Meg Lowry, Marine Corps Veteran

“The act of pulling a trigger from a man made weapon on another human being has shattered my person. You both have given me the hope and energy I need to some how find a way to try to put my shattered soul back together.”
~ Steve Lewis, US Army Veteran

The Battle Within: Sexual Violence In America’s Military - a photo essay 

By Joel Christie for the MailOnline

Pulitzer Prize finalist photo journalist Mary Calvert is revered for putting a spotlight on humanitarian issues that are ignored or that people are not aware of.

While her work – centered on women and children in crisis – has taken her all over the world, from the Democratic Republic of Congo to India, her latest assignment is much closer to home.

The former Washington Times photographer has compiled a photo essay that attempts to expose the widespread sexual harrassment of women in the American military that is going unreported.
