The Defence Forces say they are "satisfied" with procedures for dealing with complaints from women who suffer alleged sexual harassment, bullying or discrimination. However, a theme running through the findings of four years of research by a former Army captain, Tom Clonan, for his doctoral thesis in communications for Dublin City University DCUwas that women soldiers who suffered abuses felt there was no adequate way of complaining. Mr Clonan, who retired from the Army last year after 11 years, served with the Irish Battalion in the Lebanon during the Israeli bombardment of south Lebanon.

An Obama era rule that allows for Transgender men and women to serve in the military openly, and even pay for their surgeries to make their "transition", is causing some problems within the military. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, has postponed an Obama era policy to actively recruit transgender men and women, but it remains to be seen what the Pentagon will do to reform the mess President Obama has put the military in.

Private Facebook groups can be valuable discussion areas for like-minded people, but they can also promote toxic behavior in the wrong circumstances. While the group has had some above-board discussions, according to one anonymous veteran, it has been dominated by "creepy, stalker-like" photography, revenge porn and the vile talk to match. Over two dozen of the women were identified by their names and positions.
Last Saturday, the California-based Center for Investigative Reporting revealed that a Facebook group, Marines United, had been distributing nude photos of servicewomen for some time. US Naval authorities immediately began investigating hundreds of Marines, but more details have emerged in the days since -- including the discovery of another image posting board where users traded photos of women from all service branches, even requesting some by name.

The U. Army is instructing its female soldiers to "accept" having men in their showers and changing areas who are "transitioning" but still have their male genitalia, according to training documents that have been released. As previously reported, Defense Secretary James Mattis announced last week that a July 1 Obama-era deadline for the branches of the armed services to begin allowing openly transgender individuals to enlist had been delayed an additional six months. However, the move by Mattis, which came at the request of military leaders, doesn't completely halt the transgender military policy enacted by former Obama Defense Secretary Ash Carter last June.
