The Invisible Crime: Are We Failing Victims Of Sexual Violence? by The Age/The Sydney Morning Herald
Sexual violence in Australia is pervasive but rarely prosecuted, much less punished. Invisible Crime is an attempt to give a count to these crimes, a texture to the experiences of those who survive them and a data-driven analysis of the systems that too often fail to deliver justice in their wake.
A mix of data visualisation, multimedia and months of shoe-leather reporting, the feature attempts to ground its storytelling in hard numbers while never losing sight of the women and men they represent.
