On August 1st 2017, the Australian Human Rights Commission revealed that ANU ranked 1st in the country for incidents of sexual harassment and 2nd for sexual assault.
Women with disabilities, international students, queer women, transgender women, BIPOC women and gender diverse people were disproportionately victimised and faced additional barriers to accessing support.
In March 2022 the results of the National Student Safety Survey conducted in 2021 were released and exposed similarly distressing results as were released 5 years ago.
‘Follow Through ANU’ is our August 1st campaign focusing on actually acting on many of the demands we have been making of the ANU for years and setting an example by carrying out positive actions, including; cultivating a report outlining the strengths and weaknesses of ANU’s institutional response to sexual violence, organising wellbeing focused events, producing resources to support survivors in finding and navigating disclosure and reporting processes, and producing a campaign promoting available support services.
