Eve Crawford's Parliamentary Petition with Donna Freed on RADIO GORGEOUS
Gorgeous Lives: Actress Eve Crawford's Crusade on Parliament
Eve Crawford is petitioning Parliament to stop lawyers having access to counselling notes in rape and sexual assault cases. After she herself was assaulted, she was contacted by the Rape Crisis charity who while they encouraged her to avail herself of therapy, strictly cautioned her to not get it until after the trial. She was horrified to hear the reason why: her attacker's lawyers could use the counselling notes from her therapy sessions as evidence in her trial. She is driven by a desire to make the lives of other men and women who have been attacked slightly less hellish.

It is right that no one should go to prison who isn't guilty, but there are other ways to prove if someone is lying than invading the safe space of therapy after a traumatic assault. #silentnomore
