Don't go to Muslim countries next time i.e. if you are still up to it.

Since the vast majority of rape victims never speak out, I wonder how many more unidentified victims there are of Peace Corp negligence and apathy?

Back during the Viet Nam War the Peace Corp earned a reputation for being a haven for draft dodging slackers. Demographics being what they are, the uncaring honchos at the top have likely been some of those same slackers that joined back then. Why am I not surprised?

God bless those gutsy women for coming forward as they have. Hope this story gets a lot of traction.

@Subvet: They should have not allowed the Peace Corps to be an alternative to conscription. In Israel, a similar exemption is given to seminarians.

The ladies were indeed gutsy. There is one common item that I observed i.e. the countries were they served are all Islamic. Next time, the corp should go to Latin America and these will not happen.
