In this episode, we interview Dhanya Mani, founder of Kate's List. When Dhanya Mani worked as a Liberal Party staffer under the NSW Baird Government, she was subjected to inappropriate conduct by a senior parliamentary staffer. On one occasion, Dhanya was indecently assaulted in her own home.
Dhanya reported what had happened to her, exhausting every available complaints process under the state Ministerial and Parliamentary Services Act. During these processes Dhanya was told it was her fault. She was told it was not true. She was told she was making up the allegations. She was told to enter into a relationship with her perpetrator. Those who did believe Dhanya told her that if she came forward, her political career would be over.
