AI Discussion

Me: It's about Brittany Higgins, the former Liberal staffer who accused a colleague of rape. The article talks about how she was in tears over the fact that her alleged rapist, Bruce Lehrmann, still has the right to work in Politics. It's really upsetting.

Friend: Wow, that's really heartbreaking. It just goes to show how victims of sexual assault are still not taken seriously enough within the political system.

Me: Exactly. And it's even worse because the article says that the Liberal Party is still unwilling to take any action against Lehrmann. It's a huge injustice and it highlights how far we still have to go in terms of how we address sexual assault in politics.
