No matter which university you attend safety on campus and sexual assault is an ongoing concern for students. Unfortunately females are more prone to sexual assault. The ABS Personal Safety Survey reported that nearly one in five females have experienced some form of sexual assault since the age of 15. This survey also reiterated that females within the age range of 18-24 are the most vulnerable to sexual assault which goes hand in hand with the age range of majority of University students.
In February, 2016 Australia’s universities launched an initiative to prevent and address sexual assault and harassment across the education sector. The campaign, “Respect. Now. Always.” is aimed to raise awareness of sexual assault and harassment for both males and females on campus and increase the visibility of support services for students.
Although the rising numbers of sexual assault and harassment for both males and females on campus is rising there are ways to protect yourself and be more aware on campus.
Sexual Assault and harassment on campus is not something to take lightly. You must be aware and cautious that although Australia is a wonderful and overall safe country, assault and harassment can happen anywhere at anytime.
