Sexual assault issue emerges in New Zealand Defence Force

This just in from New Zealand:
On the same day one of its senior Commanders is facing a court martial over an alleged indecent assault, the Defence Force has launched an operation to try and tackle inappropriate sexual behaviour in the organisation.

The Defence Force wants to recruit more women but says it needs to deal with the underlying culture in the Defence Force first.

"New research we've commissioned shows that being a woman in our Defence Force is still harder than it should be," says Chief of Defence Force Lieutenant General Tim Keating.
