I asked the following Parliamentary Questions to get a clearer picture of incidences of sexual assault in our country.
Looking at the cases and the breakdown of ages of survivors and perpetrators of sexual assault, it is obvious that we do have a problem. https://t.co/NYquHSvwZd
Firstly, we need to re-evaluate our processes to ensure that people are sufficiently protected, and survivors are heard. Secondly, we need to start looking at how we might be cultivating some of these harmful behaviors as a society, and start educating early.
In the months to come, I’d like to investigate this further by asking more questions in Parliament and by speaking to survivors, organisations, and concerned individuals.
