Our current rule of law in rape and sexual assault cases is so weighted against victim/survivors that rarely men are found guilting of these crimes and victim/survivors are often traumatised again. Very few women report these crimes, fewer get to court and even fewer have successful outcomes.
Often when women speak up about these crimes the public do not recognise the validity unless it is proven in a criminal court. Not every woman wants a criminal process and less want the system we currently have.
At this event, speakers from the Victorian Law Reform Commission, Centre for Innovative Justice and Victimes of Crime will discuss our current system in rape and sexual assault cases and present changes and other ways for us to better provide justice for victim/survivors and the community.
