Default Don't let your daughter join the Peace Corps

Too many stories of sexual assault, and even murder, to post. Unbelievable!

Interesting article, PTM.

This has been going on a while. Peace Corps volunteer Deborah Gardner was murdered in the 70's. Looks like things are only getting worse through the years!

Like the UN, the Peace Corps appears to be rife with abuse and criminal activity of the worst sort.

In 2007, the Department of Defence (DoD) reported 2,200 cases of rape in the military. In 2009, the figure jumped to almost 3,300. One in every three women in the army has experienced some form of sexual assault, from harassment to rape; 37 percent of victims are raped multiple times, 14 percent are gang raped.
