The Australian Human Right Commission has called for submissions from students who have experienced sexual assault/ harassment at universities. The
platform that has been created is allowing people to highlight just how prevalent this issue is in so many peoples lives.
We are writing in hope that we can help promote people coming
forward and submitting their stories. It is very hard to speak about your experiences but the more people that do the better chance we have together to make a difference.
The Human Rights commission are hoping to find more information on the prevalence, nature and the reporting of cases. Through using this information they can try find the best way to change the nature of this type of violence. This is part of the key of implementing change within society. The more people who speak up the better idea they have on just how big the problem is.
You also don’t need to be a victim to submit. If you are a parent, brother, sister, friend etc of a victim your submissions will be taken. They will all be unidentifiable protecting you in the future.
If you have a story please tell. We will all stand by you.
You can find more information on the The Australian Human Rights Commission site.
