Military to search for degrading materials in offices worldwide

Decrease Increase Text size

The Secretary of Defense says that military officers and workplaces around the world will undergo scrutiny in an attempt to get rid of materials that degrade others or foster an "offensive work environment," Army Times says.

The latest round of inspections, as ordered by Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, will target Marines, soldiers and sailors and will be much like ones done in the Air Force in 2012.

Officials will be looking for any printed or digital materials that are degrading toward women, Army Times reports.

The move comes shortly after a Pentagon study revealed that as many as 26,000 military members were sexually assaulted last year.
