Campus Tour

Over the last few years Bettina has been speaking out about the so-called ‘rape crisis’ on our campuses. She was the only journalist in mainstream media last year to point out that the Human Rights Commission survey revealed remarkably good news about our campuses, with only tiny numbers of students reporting sexual assault, even when that was defined in the broadest possible terms  i.e.  including a stranger touching a student on a train to the university. The NSW Bureau of Crime Statistics has shown universities are 100 times safer for young women than the rest of the community.

Bettina is appalled that our universities are kowtowing to a small group of feminist activists and agreeing to lie about the safety of our universities for young women – risking deterring overseas families from sending their daughters to study in this country. She has now embarked on a campus tour, speaking to student groups at universities across Australia, seeking to promote honest discussion about this issue and expose the reasons why activists are promoting such untruths about student safety.

Please support her crowd-funder raising money to support the tour. This is designed to cover costs of Bettina’s travel plus extra security, when this is required.

Her first campus talk will take place at La Trobe University on Sept 6, at 11am at Eastern Lecture Theatre 3 (ELT-3), Bundoora campus. The talk was initially scheduled for August but La Trobe administrators decided to ban the event, claiming it did not align with the values of the university. After some negotiation, the university revised their decision and the talk was rescheduled.

On September 11 at 6.00 pm Bettina will speak at Sydney University. We will post details of the venue once they are available. There have been demonstrations from feminist activists at both universities protesting these talks.

Talks at Canberra University and Murdoch are being arranged with many more in the pipeline. Please contact Bettina if you would like to arrange a talk at your campus. She’s also delighted to speak to university staff.
