Recent consent reforms (NSW)

For at least the past decade, the law of sexual assault in NSW has been in a seemingly constant state of flux. With almost nauseating regularity, Parliament has made numerous amendments to the substantive, procedural and evidentiary law regarding sex crimes. Some of these have been a genuine attempt to deal with the persistent and undoubtedly real problem of sexual violence against women, others had the pungent aroma of a cynical attempt to appease some or other interest group for political advantage.
