Are you a victim of image-based abuse? Quiz and talk by Deakin Law School

Between 2020 and 2021, the Australian eSafety Commissioner received more than 25,000 reports from victims of image-based abuse. One-quarter of victims were under the age of 18. Research suggests that many more young people experience this abuse but don’t report it – are you one of them?  If so, this talk, and quiz will interest you.

Image-based abuse occurs when an intimate photograph, video or image is shared without the consent of the person pictured. It is a topical issue because of our increasing awareness of its prevalence and the distress that can be caused. Yet many people are unclear about what image-based abuse is and what can be done if they find themselves a victim.

This presentation by Professor Marilyn McMahon (Deakin Law School) and Dr Bianca Kletke (Deakin Psychology) will discuss image-based abuse and young people. Listen to the discussion, take the quiz, and become better informed on this important issue.
