Report on the Review into the Treatment of Women in the Australian Defence Force Academy

 

Phase 1 of the Review into the Treatment of Women in the Australian Defence Force has been released by Elizabeth  Broderick
Sex  Discrimination Commissioner
Chair, Review into the Treatment of Women  in the ADF

 

I am seeking permission to load into my website and print parts that are perculiar to our interests. Particularly the WRAAF of long ago who were too frightened to report these incidents. As a young ACW I was harassed and it annoyed me. I never thought to report it and it certainly was not of the proportion that other WRAAF were submitted to.
