Ongoing New Matilda investigation

Since October 2017, New Matilda has been conducting a major investigation into violence and sexual harrassment directed against women. You can read our stories by clicking here. 

We need YOUR help to keep it going.

As part of our investigation, we've brought award-winning journalist Nina Funnell on board to lead our reporting and investigations on the issue. Nina is one of the nation's most prominent writers on the issue of sexual violence against women. Our goal is to keep Nina reporting on issues of violence against women, but New Matilda is a small, independent media outlet - achieving this will obviously require significant additional resources.


Our first feature in this series  focussed on prominent Sydney barrister and media personality, Charles Waterstreet. The popular ABC television show Rake is based loosely on his life, and Mr Waterstreet is a co-creator of the series.  

Mr Waterstreet has been accused of the serious sexual harassment of  a young law student, who briefly worked in his chambers in August 2017. You can read more about the issue here.  In addition to that, Mr Waterstreet (in October 2018) was accused of additional abuse of a young law student. You can read about that here .


This investigation  into the James Morrison Academy in South Australia revealed that one of Australia's most prominent musicians, Graeme Lyall, targetted a young student at his school, and showed pornographic images to students.

This investigation is ongoing, and relates to prominent NSW Greens MP Jeremy Buckingham. You can read reporting on this issue here , where a former staffer alleges sexual assault against Mr Buckingham. New Matilda's investigation into this issue is ongoing.  

We need your help to keep the momentum on this issue. In exchange for contributions of $100 or more , we'll provide individuals with a corresponding New Matilda subscription.

We'll also add all contributor's - regardless of the level of your contribution - to a special 'supporter's only' email, so you get all our investigations straight into your email inbox.

Established in 2004, New Matilda is one of the nation's longest running independent online media outlets. We're also, arguably, Australia's most fiercely independent publication, and most regularly sued.

We need your help to continue our tradition of fearless, investigative journalism. Every cent counts.

Our first donation for our new campaign is a monster. The generosity of readers never fails to floor me.

It's a huge task... so spread the word if you're able!
