Human Rights Commission accused of ‘betraying’ students who participated in sexual assault survey

A survey of thousands is set to unveil widespread instances of sexual harassment on campuses but students will not find out how bad the problem is on their campus after the Australian Human Rights Commission said it would not publicly release data on individual universities.

The decision to not publicly release each university’s incident figures comes despite many university leaders acknowledging privately that releasing such data would be the most effective catalyst for change. Sex Discrimination Commissioner Kate Jenkins said she would”encourage universities to release their own figures”.
