— Newcastle Herald (@newcastleherald) August 1, 2017It’s probably the most obvious example of rape culture that Newcastle university has.
Former university women’s convener Lucinda Iacono, on a campus residence party “gee up” video.
The university’s 21 per cent of male student respondents who said they had been sexually harassed is “higher than our community might expect”, Professor McMillen said, but it is unclear whether the figureindicates a prevalence of hazing, other types of male-on-male harassment, or harassmentby females.
From a low statistical base, Newcastle students responding to the Human Rights Commission survey said they had been subject to “repeated or inappropriate advances” by email, social media and online chat rooms at more than twice thenational rate.
That doesn’t include a University of Newcastlesubgroup of students who reported, at three times the national rate, encountering“other unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature”.
“It tends to be female students who have that experience,” Professor McMillen said.
“Our approaches to education and prevention have to include the online space.”
Nationally, the surveyfound women were four times more likely to have been sexually assaulted than men in a university residence, withpost-graduate studentsmore likelyto havebeen harassed or assaulted by a universitystaff member.
