Victoria has enforced new gag laws preventing survivors of sexual assault, rape and family violence from using their own identity while speaking out about and telling their stories. The only way around this currently is for a victim to get a court order which can be a timely and costly process, in order to use their own name when speaking out online, to the media etc. after the perpetrator has been found guilty. This is stripping victims of their power and protecting criminals. It’s never ones choice to be sexually abused, assaulted or raped but it should be their choice to speak up and empower others to do so, victims/survivors have already had so much taken from them it shouldn’t be up to someone else if they choose to share their own identity alongside their story or not without the fear of a sanction such as fines and jail time.

Sign the petition to help myself and others bring this to the governments attention and to change the decision! #LetUsSpeak @VictimAwareness #VictimRights
