Interview with Australian sex discrimination commissioner Elizabeth Broderick on the report on sexual harassment of women cadets at the Australian Defence Force Academy.
From the article:
MARK COLVIN: Almost three in every four young women cadets at the Australian Defence Force Academy say they've experienced some form of "unacceptable" sexual harassment there.
That 74 per cent finding comes from an independent inquiry into the academy, led by the sex discrimination commissioner Elizabeth Broderick.
She began her independent review after male cadets secretly filmed a young woman at the academy having sex and the vision was broadcast over the internet.
Commissioner Broderick has made 31 recommendations to try and stamp out the problems.
She says that although problems exist at the academy, things have improved since the last thorough examination in the late 90s.
The sex discrimination commissioner Elizabeth Broderick is speaking to our chief political correspondent, Sabra Lane.
