Description: One of the biggest and well-kept secrets of the U.S. is the number and frequency of sexual assaults on military service women by their fellow comrades. In the 2012 documentary "The Invisible War," filmmaker Kirby Dick investigates how over 500,000 female service members have experienced sexual assault with little to no justice.

Only 8 per cent of known cases are prosecuted with a marginally low 2 per cent conviction rate. The documentary features interviews with several women from different military branches, who bravely share the details of their assaults and the chain of events that followed. Along with sharing their stories some of the women record their daily lives and routines as assault victims.
