At the request of Australia’s 39 universities, the Australian Human Rights Commission has conducted a national, independent survey of university students to gain greater insight into the nature, prevalence and reporting of sexual assault and sexual harassment at Australian universities. The results have now been released and can be viewed here.
Independent research is a vital tool to gain insight into the culture of sexual assault and harassment that has effected the lives of many University students across Australia. As a defender of Human Rights for all, we hope this research will be the first step towards positive change. We recommend reading the full report to improve your awareness of this issue.
