The sorry & shameful tales three newspaper front pages tell us today.

The Age in Melbourne carries a front page exclusive interview with a girl, who was allegedly raped in Geelong by three men at the age of 14 . . . Charges against the three perpetrators were dropped earlier this year because the criminal trial was too distressing for the victim

The Daily Telegraph in Sydney has the shameful story of a 15 year old school boy who faced court yesterday for filming his friend raping a 15 year old girl three weeks ago. The footage was distributed to at least 50 students.

The Sydney Morning Herald reports on a senior Westpac executive who is facing allegations of sexual misconduct. It is reported that the behaviour being investigated includes taunting a female employee for being fat and unwanted physical contact.

Three different stories paint a sorry and shameful tale. Men – and boys – behaving badly. Criminally.

Violating the girls and women in their vicinity and – in effect – getting away with it.
