sexual assault

Lt. Col. Celia FlorCruz, 55, has done a lot in her life. She graduated from West Point at a time when women were just being allowed in. She flew a Medevac helicopter in a war zone. She’s now a top officer at Joint Base Lewis-McChord and is married to JBLM I Corps Deputy Commander Maj. Gen. Kenneth Dahl.

What she’s never done, until now, is speak about her personal experience as a victim of sexual assault, both in college and in the U.S. Army.

Earlier this year, a Toronto police officer suggested women could avoid sexual assault by "not dressing like sluts." That comment incited an international movement called SlutWalk, where activists dress in skimpy outfits to protest the treatment of sexual assault victims. This Sunday, June 19, Seattle will hold its own SlutWalk.
