Tell Fox News: Fire Liz Trotta, who said women in uniform should "expect" to be raped
And issue an apology to all American Female Military Personnel
On February 12, Fox News contributor Liz Trotta said, on air, that women in the military should “expect” to be raped.
Trotta cited as evidence a new Pentagon report on sexual abuse in the military: “I think they have actually discovered there is a difference between men and women. And the sexual abuse report says that there has been, since 2006, a 64% increase in violent sexual assaults. Now, what did they expect?”
What they expect is to be treated with respect, and given the honor and dignity they have earned by serving their country. What they did not and do not expect is to be raped or sexually assaulted simply because of who they are.
Please join us on behalf of all rape survivors and sign our petition demanding Fox News fire Liz Trotta for these outrageous comments and issue an apology to all female military personnel.
We demand that Fox News immediately dismiss Liz Trotta and issue an apology to every woman serving in the armed forces of the United States.
