    Sexual Violence: An Occupational Hazard -- In Iraq and at Home - By Marie Tessier, Women's Media Center, AlterNet
    'Sexual assault, domestic violence and stalking all naturally affect the ability of anyone to concentrate or focus on work,' says Legal Momentum senior staff attorney Maya Raghu. 'If a sexual assault happens at work or the perpetrator was a co-worker, it can make the workplace itself a traumatic experience.'

    Moreover, about one in five acts of nonfatal violence happen in the workplace, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics. While Jones' story from the Green Zone is stark and its details dramatic, its facts and its outcome are not unique. She speaks for thousands of sexual assault victims confounded by the failures of justice and facing the Hobson's choice of keeping a job or trying to heal.
