Femmes au combat trace le parcours de femmes militaires courageuses qui ont osé porter plainte au prix de leur carrière et ont dénoncé une culture militaire hostile aux femmes.  Tourné dans plusieurs bases militaires au Canada, le documentaire lève aussi le voile sur un système de justice militaire où il est difficile pour les victimes d’agression sexuelle d’obtenir justice.

 Femmes au combat questionne non seulement l’efficacité des cours martiales mais aussi les mesures mises en place par le leadership des Forces canadiennes avec l’opération HONNEUR pour changer la culture militaire.

 

 

Femmes au combat chronicles the story of women in the Canadian Forces who dare complain about incidents of sexual assaults and in doing so put their military career at risk. Each of them describe and denounce a military culture which is hostile to women. The documentary was filmed on several military bases in Canada. It throws a spotlight on the challenges faced by sexual assault victims having to deal with the military justice system.

Femmes au combat openly questions both the efficacy of courts martial and the measures taken by the Canadian Forces leadership under  OPERATION HONOR to change the military culture.
