Should victims of sexual abuse be permitted to name their abusers?

  Tony, Avery and Michael discuss the merits of allowing the sexually abused to name their abuser. We ask the questions: legislation prevents a survivor of sexual abuse from naming their abuser.

What is wrong with child safety office vetting process?

  After recent revelations about abuse of children in child care centres, Tony Tonkin, Avery Hilditch and Paul Schluter discuss the vetting process.
