Sexual Assault in the Army: The Pain

This was the most difficult episode to watch by far. As a woman there are things that are just too unbearable to sit and watch even if it is all acting.

With the series 'Lauren' a story is being told...the story of so many women in the army. A story that nobody ever feels comfortable telling. A story that is spoken of in innuendos and the women are always blamed. No woman deserves to be treated like a dog; like a being with no soul.

I cannot praise Troian Bellisario (Lauren) enough for the way she portrayed her character. You could feel her pain.

Troian is simply magnificent in this episode. She portrayed the strength that every woman has hidden inside. The source of which is often unrecognized. The strength to fight even when the physical abilities are lacking. The strength to persevere.
