THE NO RESPONSE GAME

No response as yet to emails sent to the Australian Human Rights Commission and UNSW Australian Human Rights Centre questioning involvement in The Hunting Ground Australia Project.

To the AHRC:

Madman Entertainment, in promotional materials for The Hunting Ground, mentions the Australian Human Rights Commission’s involvement in The Hunting Ground Project. This implies AHRC endorses the film as an accurate “exposé of sexual assault on American university campuses”, these alleged crimes occurring in a purely hypothetical “rape culture”.

Does the AHRC accept the validity of the ill-defined term “rape culture” as used in the film’s promotional materials? If so, please define rape culture.

Is the AHRC satisfied the sex assault statistics cited in the film are accurate?

Is the AHRC satisfied the sex assault allegations in the film have been adequately vetted to ensure validity.

What is the total estimated cost of developing, administering and interpreting the mentioned survey?

What amount has The Hunting Ground Project contributed to the cost of the survey?

If The Hunting Ground Project is not covering the full cost of the survey where will additional funds come from?

To UNSW AHRC:

UNSW Australian Human Rights Centre is currently working in partnership with The Hunting Ground Australia Project.

Does UNSW AHRC accept the validity of the ill-defined term “rape culture” as used in the film’s promotional materials? If so, please define rape culture.

Is UNSW AHRC satisfied that sex assault statistics cited in the film are accurate?

Is UNSW AHRC satisfied that the sex assault allegations in the film have been adequately vetted to ensure accuracy.

Stay tuned for developments.
