Abstract

The Sexual Offences Bill finally seems to be winding its way to conclusion in parliament. It has taken three years to reach this point since its first introduction in 2003, raising serious questions about the government’s sense of urgency in addressing sexual assault. This article looks at the Bill to establish what it really holds for victims of sexual assault.
