Lawmakers on Wednesday angrily chastised military officials for not doing enough to address the “crisis” of sexual assault at the three service academies, noting that their promises for change have not resulted in better results so far.

“After a decade-plus of concerted efforts to address sexual harassment and assault, the problem has only gotten worse,” said Rep. Jackie Speier, D-Calif., during a House Armed Services Committee hearing on the issue. “This isn’t a blip, a ‘me too’ bump, or some accident. It’s a clear illustration of a destructive trend and systemic problem.”

The event — the second of the day by a congressional committee on the issue — came about two weeks after the release of the latest report from the Defense Department’s Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Office. The document found that the number of cadets reporting unwanted sexual encounters has increased almost 50 percent since 2016, to 747 incidents last year.
