Report: Sexism part of military academies' culture

Friday, 10 January 2014 04:27 Published in National News
   WASHINGTON (AP) - A Pentagon report finds students at the three U.S. military academies often believe they have to put up with sexist and offensive behavior, reflecting a culture of disrespect that permeates the schools and fuels reports of sexual harassment and assaults.
   The report being released today points to scandals involving sports teams at the Army, Navy and Air Force academies during the last school year. It urges leaders to do more to improve training and prevention programs.
   The report identifies sports and club teams as an area in which students need more training. Military officials say they are working on ways to encourage students to take action when they see or hear of sexual assault or harassment.
   The Associated Press obtained the report ahead of its release.
