Victorian Rape Survivors Silenced - #174
Warning: please be advised this episode contains accounts of sexual assault. Listener discretion is advised.
Journalists Nina Funnel and Sherelle Moody discovered a very big problem with a new piece of legislation passed in Victoria in February 2020. They’ve been helping rape survivors lobby the Victorian Attorney-General Jill Hennessey for several months demanding a fix for the problem without meaningful engagement let alone success. On August 26, Nina published an opinion piece about the legislation on news.com.au which has caused major upheaval in the survivor community and terse acknowledgement from Government, (along with a healthy dose of gaslighting from certain sections of the media.)
Nina Funnell joins us with the facts, as does a newly silenced survivor.
