    Sen. Gillibrand, sexual assault, and the fight to fix military justice (Rerun from #5)

    Sen. Gillibrand, sexual assault, and the fight to fix military justice (Rerun from #5)

    Women and men who serve in uniform often face an enemy within their own ranks: sexual assault. In this story, newly remastered from The Good Fight's 5th episode in December 2013, we tell the story of survivor Trina McDonald as she went from enlistee to victim to survivor to fearless advocate, and how she joined forces with Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand to take on the system that had failed her.


    Note: The Good Fight is on a summer hiatus, but will continue posting remastered reruns until we return with brand-new episodes. Happy summer!
