Janelle O’Connor was the first person in the State of Tasmania to exercise her right to be named as a rape survivor, on the 24th of April 2020. Up until then it was illegal for rape survivors to self-identify.
Janelle and Nina Funnel, the founder of the #LetHerSpeak campaign join us to explain the legal changes, and Janelle tells us her story.
WARNING – This is an extremely disturbing story, please exercise discretion.
