In line with our focus on social justice topics, our speaker this week was Raji Gandhi.
Ms. Gandhi presented a compelling look at Military Justice System's treatment of female complainants that come forward regarding sexual misconduct. She compared her findings to the civilian criminal justice system and spoke to how Courts still informally apply sterotypes and rape myths when assessing female complainants. She included her analysis of how rank and position affected the spectrum of consent which is overlooked by the Court Martials legal analysis.
