US Air Force mulls using women trainers for female cadets after widening sex scandals
Washington, June 29 (ANI): The U.S. Air Force is considering moves to hire more women trainers for female cadets in the wake of widening sex abuses against them by their instructors.
According to Christian Science Monitor, it would be an unprecedented step for the Air Force, which trains 35,000 cadets a year, 22 percent of whom are women.
The Air Force is considering such a move after a dozen US military trainers Base in Texas are being probed for alleged sexual misconduct against young female cadets.
General Edward Rice, head of the service's Air Education and Training Command, said that the Air Force is also considering the possibility of simply hiring more female trainers as there was a shortage of new female recruits.
Currently, about one in ten Air Force basic training instructors are women.
A separate Air Force-wide survey released in March 2011, one of the most comprehensive ever undertaken by the US military, found that one in five Air Force women had been sexually assaulted. (ANI)
