Description

Please join us to support and celebrate the 30 and 25 years respectively of the the Women's Centre Against Sexual Assault and the Sexual Assault Crisis Line.


Did You Know Sexual Assault is a Health Issue?

Research shows clear connections between sexual assault and women’s health and wellbeing. Intimidating and/or unwanted sexual behaviour from another person can have wide-ranging harmful effects on a woman’s emotional, psychological, mental, physical, gynaecological and reproductive health.

The Women’s provides a 24 hour, seven day a week crisis care response to female and male victim/survivors of sexual assault. The women’s sexual assault response is provided by Centre Against Sexual Assault (CASA ) during business hours and by the Sexual Assault Crisis Line (SACL) after hours.


Join us to learn more about this important service of the Royal Women's Hospital and how you can support this work.

Guest Speaker

Associate Professor Leslie Reti

In 1986 Les Reti developed a unique model of service for survivors of sexual assault and he played an intrinsic role in the establishment of what became CASA House at the Women’s. He led and chaired the first Committee of Management for CASA House, which became the model for CASA organisations across Victoria. Under his guidance, CASA House led the development of State-wide standards of practice, after-hours crisis care and a Code of Conduct for Victoria Police governing protocols in responding to victim-survivors of sexual assault. Les’ influence has changed approaches taken by the courts, Victoria Police and the health system.
