‘Disappointing’ all members of government did ‘not listen to the message of youth and women’

Consent advocate Chanel Contos says while it was disappointing certain members of the Victorian government were not present at her briefing on Thursday there would be an opportunity for them to hear her proposal as she would continue to speak on it. 

Acting Victorian premier James Merlino was absent yesterday at a briefing given by Ms Contos to the Victorian Parliament on a proposed online informal reporting system to encourage people to speak up about sexual assault.  

“While it’s disappointing that not everyone has made time out of their day to listen to the message of youth and women I think there’s still a lot of opportunity for us to be heard,” Ms Contos told Sky News this morning. 

She said, however, it was a “pretty special moment in history”.

“I am so happy that for the first time the voices of the youth of Australia are being heard, and women of Australia and especially young girls.”
