#LetHerSpeak campaign continues with JNI funding

Journalist Nina Funnell’s #LetHerSpeak campaign, which aims to amend the laws that prevent sexual assault survivors from telling their stories, has made a major impact.

The campaign has result in changes to four laws in three jurisdictions β€” Tasmania, Northern Territory and Victoria β€” where sexual assault survivors, including Australian of the Year Grace Tame, were previously gagged from speaking out. The campaign has also won 13 court orders on behalf of rape survivors.

The campaign has had a broader impact. Petitions for law reform have been signed more than 200,000 times and the campaign has raised more than $80,000 to support survivors in their legal actions.
