Human Rights Watch is hosting a screening and discussion of the Academy Award nominated documentary, The Invisible War. This passionate and important film has drawn attention to the shameful and under-reported epidemic of rape within the US military. US Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta was so moved by seeing this film that he immediately announced an important first step—a crucial change in the way in which reported rapes will be investigated in the military.
