Activist Grace Tame features on Marie Claire cover
April 15, 2021 10:24
Australian of the Year and child sexual abuse survivor Grace Tame is the cover star for the May issue of Marie Claire.
The announcement:
For the first time in its 25-year history, Marie Claire has put a non-celebrity on its cover with child sexual abuse survivor and activist Grace Tame helming the magazine’s May issue.
Named 2021 Australian of the Year in January, Tame’s impassioned message and advocacy for the eradication of child sex abuse and national reform around consent laws, have captured the attention of Australians and ignited a revolution.

Only if you are 'a woman on the left' will the 'sisterhood' come to your defence

Sky News host Alan Jones says only "if you are a woman on the left-side of politics", will the "sisterhood" come to your defence, but if it is a conservative woman all pleasantries are sidelined.

Mr Jones said if there were ever a person with "a massive chip on her shoulder", it would be the "always indignant" Magda Szubanski.

"Ms Szubanski tweeted her support for the Australian of the Year, Grace Tame, over her uneducated criticism of the talented Federal Liberal Senator, Amanda Stoker, being made the Assistant Minister for Women," he said.

"The criticism came Amanda Stoker's way for one reason – she is a conservative woman. That is her crime.

"Your criticism says more about the person you are than it does about the person you attacked."

Grace Tame has added her voice to the calls for sexual violence law reform.
The Saturday and Sunday Telegraphs have launched a campaign - in partnership with Rape And Sexual ­Assault Research and Advocacy - calling for consent law reform, specialised sexual assault courts and an audit of relationship and sexuality education in NSW schools.
"I definitely support this; anything that's in the interest of progress of this issue is important," Ms Tame said on Saturday.
"In terms of legislation across the nation, we have eight different jurisdictions and eight different definitions of consent.

Woman who accused Bill Shorten of raping her at Labor Party camp when she was 16 launches fundraiser

A woman who claims she was raped by Bill Shorten at a Labor Youth Camp when she was 16 years old has launched a fundraiser to demand her police file so she can sue him in civil court.
Kathy Sherriff alleges the former Labor Party leader was 19 years old when he raped her at the camp in Portarlington, Victoria, in 1986.
Mr Shorten has vehemently denied the allegations numerous times since they came to light in 2014 and was cleared by a police investigation.
Detectives began investigating the accusation in late 2013 but did not lay charges, concluding Mr Shorten had no case to answer.

Longtime TV presenter Melissa Doyle would like a word or two about women. Not just any women, but those with a few extra years under the belt. Since turning 50 and leaving Network Seven - both of which happened last year - Doyle has not so much retired as refuelled, which is fitting given her new crusade.
"When you have a milestone birthday, it's a moment to stop and reassess," she says. "You find your purpose. As you get older, you recognise who you are and what you have to contribute to the world … you're less worried about smaller, trivial things that might have kept you awake when you were younger."

Why we have every right to criticise our Prime Minister

Card image cap


It's this right to criticise and disagree with the decisions made by our leaders that creates the bedrock of democracy that we enjoy.
Freedom of speech has become a phrase synonymous with many believing they can say whatever they want and get away with it, but it's actually not explicitly protected in the Australian constitution.
What is recognised is a freedom of political speech which is protected from criminal prosecution.
I cannot fathom why someone would question this right to speak truth to power.
We're citizens, not slaves. We have the license to criticise our government officials, particularly the man in the top spot, without fear.

‘The most unsafe workplace’? Parliament, Australian women say

SYDNEY — When Julia Banks arrived in Parliament five years ago after a successful career in law and business, she felt as if she’d stepped back into the ’80s. Alcohol flowed freely. She occasionally smelled it on the breath of male lawmakers when they voted.
Many men in Australian politics also thought nothing of belittling women, she said, or spreading sexual rumors. More than a few treated junior employees like playthings. Once, Banks said, a fellow lawmaker introduced a new intern while slowly rubbing his hand up and down the young woman’s back.

Grace Tame is ‘convoluting’ Amanda Stoker’s support of Bettina Arndt06/04/2021|6min
Australian of the Year Grace Tame is “convoluting” Assistant Minister for Women Amanda Stoker’s support of Bettina Ardnt’s university campus tour, according to Sky News contributor Liz Storer.
Ms Tame lashed the prime minister’s appointment of Ms Stoker and claimed she had undermined accounts of abuse by supporting Bettina Ardnt’s campus tour which sought to highlight the need for due process in rape cases.
The assistant minister for women refuted these claims and called them “not informed” pointing to her work on sexual violence as a prosecutor, and how she raised Ms Arndt during Senate Estimates to highlight the universities' “inconsistent approaches to free speech and de-platforming”.

Australia's new assistant minister for women has a message for left-wing activists and Twitter keyboard warriors: Our lives will never improve if you don't stop tearing down women for having the "wrong" beliefs and instead focus on making things better for everyone.
"It's really interesting that people who clearly don't know anything about you or your record or what motivates you think it's OK to tear you down just because you come from a different political tradition," Queensland LNP Senator Amanda Stoker told The Daily Telegraph, responding to criticism of her new portfolio.

Goodness! Following the resignation of the Upper Hunter Nationals MP Michael Johnsen last week – following a serious allegation of rape, which he strongly denies, and other allegations he offered a sex worker $1000 to ply her trade in Parliament House itself – this coming byelection will have a serious impact on our state’s two female political leaders. If the Coalition loses, the Berejiklian government will move into minority. If the ALP doesn’t get a thumping win, the leadership of Jodi McKay will be terminal.

The Me Too movement needs more work if it's going to make a difference


examination of the past, present and future of the Me Too movement.
Read the whole series here.
What do we want from the Me Too movement? Change, of course. A culture shift. Women to be believed. Men to be held accountable.
But the Me Too movement must be more than just a mood board. A specific plan of action — from what legislation we want to be changed, to which report recommendations we want to be implemented, and what policies must be introduced — needs to be put forward not just by violence prevention and gender equity groups but by all those participating in the wider movement.

$3b domestic violence effort has failed: report

More than $3 billion spent over the past decade on a coordinated national strategy has failed to reduce family, domestic and sexual violence, according to a bipartisan parliamentary inquiry.
In 2009 state and federal officials agreed on a decade-long plan to reduce violence against women and their children, which led to the creation of the Our Watch organisation to prevent domestic violence, the “Stop it at the Start” awareness campaign and national support services such as 1800RESPECT.
On Thursday, Parliament’s standing committee on social policy and legal affairs published a 471-page review of the plan that concluded it had not cut violence within relationships and against children.

Secure funding for frontline family violence services recommended by bipartisan inquiry

Card image cap


Incidents of domestic violence have surged during the pandemic and, despite the federal government’s $150m in additional domestic violence funding announced in March, frontline services have been struggling to meet demand.
One of the key recommendations from parliament’s Committee on Social Policy and Legal Affairs is understood to be a change in the way frontline services are funded to give more certainty to service delivery, with a call for five-year funding agreements to be in place with providers.
However, the committee’s final report is understood to have shied away from making recommendations that require a substantial financial commitment, despite calls from providers for a multibillion-dollar funding injection.
