Today’s #endmilitaryrape Twitter storm organized by the Service Women’s Action Network reminded us how grateful we are for the activists working on- and off-line to protect our troops from sexual violence. Here are a few we recommend following:
- Anu Bhagwati (@AnuBhagwati): Executive Director, Service Women’s Action Network/SWAN (
@servicewomen). Entrepreneur. Marine Corps veteran. Women’s advocate. Risk-taker. #GettingThingsDone
- Jeremiah Arbogast (@JJArbogast): Retired Marine /
#MilSuicide Survivor / Wheelchair Warrior / Male #MST Survivor / Adaptive Sports Athlete
- Panayiota Bertzikis (@panayiotab): Public speaker, blogger, nonprofit professional, activist, yoga enthusiast, and global mutt. USCG veteran. Tweets my own.
- Service Women’s Action Network (@SWAN): Service Women’s Action Network: Serving Military Women and Veterans
- Military Rape Crisis Center (@MilitaryRape): Largest organization working with service members and veterans suffering from military sexual trauma.
Nominate for next week’s installment in the comments! We’re particularly looking for activists tweeting about their on-the-ground work. Links appreciated. And, of course, make sure to follow @feministing.
