According to Merit?: Revenge porn and the law

According to Merit?: Revenge porn and the law

By Amy Johnstone and Sophie Brown


Snapshot Targets and KPIs used as part of other business strategies need to include targets for diversity. Progress against diversity targets needs to be reviewed together with other business targets, and those responsible need to be accountable. Targets need to be public and transparent. While sending sexy pictures has become common in online dating, the internet, social media and smart phones have made it easier to distribute such material without the subject’s consent. This non-consensual distribution of private sexual material is known as revenge porn. The experience of not-for-profit organisations working in this area suggests that women are disproportionately affected by revenge porn and that it often occurs in the context of violent relationships or a relationship breakdown. However, it has only recently been understood as a form of family violence and sexual assault and the legal response has lagged. In November 2015 the issue of revenge porn was referred to the Senate Legal and Constitutional Affairs Committee for inquiry and report. Victorian Women Lawyers (VWL) made a submission and gave evidence at the public hearing in February 2016.
