#LetHerSpeak Janelle O’Connor’s sexual assault. WARNING – VIOLENT CONTENT - #159

Janelle O’Connor was the first person in the State of Tasmania to exercise her right to be named as a rape survivor, on the 24th of April 2020. Up until then it was illegal for rape survivors to self-identify. 

Janelle and Nina Funnel, the founder of the #LetHerSpeak campaign join us to explain the legal changes, and Janelle tells us her story. 


WARNING – This is an extremely disturbing story, please exercise discretion.
