Photos of dozens of female US marines have been shared without their consent on a Facebook page called “Marines United”.

In the photos, some taken without permission, the victims are nude and are identified by their names, rank and duty stations.

The Facebook page containing the images is private. Its members, all male, are retired and active servicemen.

"Multiple victims recently began speaking out about those unauthorised posts. But they received threats and backlash in an attempt to quiet them. We will not be silenced,” said Erika Butner, a former marine.

Al Jazeera's Gerald Tan reports.
