NSW Rape Crisis Centre reports that 1 in 5 women in Australia will experience sexual assault in their lifetime. Many others will experience harrassment. We need to claim our spaces - on the streets, in our homes, online, in workplaces, everywhere! Women have the right to live free of fear, and free from the threats of physical, emotional, and psychological abuse.
