The Pursuit of Justice for Vanessa Guillen
The story of former U.S. Army Specialist Vanessa Guillen's sexual assault and murder at Ford Hood, TX, became known worldwide, with the #IAmVanessaGuillen hashtag going viral on social media, as it raised awareness on how prevalent the issue of sexual assault within the U.S. military is.
