July 18, 2017by Jane Gilmore

According to this article in the Cairns Post, this man was charged with attempted rape.

Sexual violence is real, traumatic and far too common. Hiding it behind euphemisms is not journalism, it’s minimising men’s violence against women.

And women are not defined by their relationship to the people they care for. She’s a person, not just a mother.
