Sexual Assault Rally

Posted on: Fri 1 Sep 2017

“…51% of Adelaide University were sexually harassed and 6.7% were sexually assaulted. Of these statistics, transgender and gender-versed students were most likely to experience harassment at 45%. Sexual harrasment rates among women were 32% and men were 17%….” 

University of Adelaide Second-Year Olivia Carletti joined Breakfast Producer Riley Galloway to speak about the alarming statistics of sexual assault on campus and how things must change in order to evolve as a university.

Olivia, along with other students have planned a rally at The University of Adelaide Hub on Monday the 4th of September to protest against sexual violence and bring forth the stories of survivors to the wider public.
