A new ‘gag-law’ has come into play in Victoria where rape and sexual assault victims are prohibited from speaking out about their stories once a guilty verdict has been passed. This allows the perpetrators to feel as though they have gotten away with their actions as after they have served there punishment, the victims cannot shed anymore light on the situation. These victims didn’t ask for these actions to come upon them and now the Victorian Government is not giving them the right to share their experience, advocate or allow others struggling with similar circumstances to hear that there are other people there to support them. If a rape or sexual assault victim is found guilty of speaking out after a guilty verdict they can be handed a fine of up to $3000 (more then a fine for breaching COVID restrictions). This law is not necessary. #LetUsSpeak
