Reform of WA Sexual Offence Laws – Key Learnings from other States and Territories – Meeting Recording

To coincide with prospective changes to Western Australia’s sexual offence laws, WLSWA co-hosted WA Sexual Offence Laws: Key Learnings from other States and Territories, with the Centre for Women’s Safety and Wellbeing.

We had presenters from around Australia who talked to their respective experiences of participating in processes to modernise sexual offence laws and improve victim-survivor’s access to justice.

Nadia Bromley, CEO Women’s Legal Service Queensland

Yvette Cehtel, CEO Women’s Legal Service Tasmania

Professor Donna Chung, Social Work and Social Policy, Curtin University

Dr Alison Evans, CEO, Centre for Women’s Safety and Wellbeing

Lara Freidin, Executive Officer, Women’s legal Services Australia

Hayley Foster, CEO, Full Stop Australia

Amanda Blackburn, Project Director, Law Reform Commission WA

There was much talk after that we should look at doing this again. This includes the need for independent legal rep for victim-survivors and sexual assault in intimate partner relationships.
