- harsher code of cunduct laws on the men who do perpatrate,
on that note, how would YOU handle the situation?
You have to change the culture in the military that considers rape victims to have been "asking for it" by joining up in the first place, as has been suggested in this thread.
I think you also have to combat the sexual-dominance culture that is curiously American. After all in the United States prison rape is endemic. Prison rape is relatively unheard of outside the US because there's no culture of sexual dominance and no ridiculous notion that "It's not gay if my partner is unwilling".
Oh and to change the culture you have to severely punish the perpetrators and severely punish any officer who allows it to happen. Shame them in the same way rapists are shamed in the UK for example. Shame them in the same way that perpetrators of sexual violence against children are shamed in the US.
