Clark illuminates on how theAustralian justice system applies to both the victims of sexual assaults and the offenders. One ofthe issues that Clark highlights in the article is the declining rate of prosecution and conviction ofthe sexual offenses while the victims/survivors of the offenses continue to suffer the leniency ofthe criminal justice system. She argues that such controversy always leaves the victims/survivorswith distress and trauma. Clark, however, contends that the current climate of the Australiancriminal justice system has undergone reformation and redefinition hence it has increasinglyfocused on the provision of justice to the victims of sexual assault. She, therefore, addresses thecreation of procedures that provide fairness and responsiveness to the need of the victims.Considering the broadness of the criminal justice system, Clark's contribution remainsfundamental and relevant to the topic of how justice is applied in Australia.
