The Sydney Morning Herald: Let’s end this for good, man to man

The Sydney Morning Herald: Let’s end this for good, man to man

I have a piece in Monday’s Sydney Morning Herald, about what men can do to prevent sexual assault:

Australian sport has a women problem: its men won’t stop assaulting them. After dozens of incidents of brawling, public urination and worse, footballers in particular have become notorious for their bad behaviour off the field.

But it is the repeated arrests and a handful of convictions for domestic and sexual assaults in the past two decades that are the most distressing.

Even one of our golden boys of the pool, Grant Hackett, is embroiled in a very public he said/she said marriage breakdown precipitated by a drunken rampage in October. He denies an allegation in a police report that he threw his wife, Candice Alley, across the room.

This is why men like Clint Newton are more important than ever.
