In late January 2017, a member of the Facebook group Marines United posted a link to a Google Drive filled with folders containing nude photographs of servicewomen. The images were shared without the women's consent. The link was open to the public. The Facebook group had 30,000 members; all were male.
On March 4, 2017, The War Horse and Reveal from the Center for Investigative Reporting broke the story. Over the following week the U.S. Marines Corps was forced to respond and the scandal attracted the attention of U.S. politicians and news outlets around the world.
