Wendy Bacon has written an amazing story that was published today on page 4 of The Sydney Morning Herald. It's unusual to find a senior academic breaking a story of this kind, in Australia.

The story is horrific. It is amazing that it took so long for anything to happen. There is no doubt in my mind that she should have gone to the media earlier. She only decided to come out during the trial.

Good on the Herald for running this story. We need more of this type of journalism: committed, caring, intelligent, topical.

And good on Bacon for keeping her hand in.
