I-Search Paper: What I Wanted to Find Out: Research Questions <br />Nicole T.<br />Sexual Abuse of Female Veterans<br />April 12, 2010<br />5th Period<br />
What provokes the abuse of female veterans? Why is the female gender targeted?
What types of soldiers are more likely to sexually abuse women?
What has happened to women that have been sexually abused?
What has been done to prevent the abuse of female veterans?
I have chosen these five questions as the basis for my research project. These questions take a great look into sexual abuse of female veterans. It is very specific and will produce great information. I feel that all of these questions are great in discovering the reasons of sexual abuse of female veterans. I have come to find that women are always treated as the weaker gender and I have no idea why. They have proven to the world that they are capable to contend with men and can manage the harsh realities of the world. <br />I came up with the first question because I was curious what exactly makes these soldiers "
I know they come from great families and great backgrounds so why harm one of your fellow comrades. I find that this is a question that definitely needs to be addressed. I came up with the second question because I am inquisitive of why it is females that are targeted. What sets them apart from the other genders? I came up with the third question because I want to know whether the high ranking soldiers are more likely to abuse women or whether the low ranking soldiers are. I came up with the fourth question because I want to know how the women have coped after this encounter. How have they managed to move on and continue living their life? Lastly, that last question is very important because I want to know what the U.S. has done to stop abuse. Have they taken extensive measures to put an end to this occurrence or have they ignored it? All these questions are yet to be answered and I am quite excited to find the answers to all of them.<br />
