Documentary filmmaker Kirby Dick's 'The Invisible War' is a study of rape in the U.S. military that leaves viewers weeping and seething. More than 20 percent of women in the military have reported a sexual assault. The department estimates that about 80 percent of such assaults, which affect many men as well as women, are not reported. omen are often penalized for alleging sexual assault and are required to report such attacks to their chain-of-command superior, who in some cases is the accused rapist.
