Notes:  This paper discusses intra-racial rape of Aboriginal women in Central Australia, including the impact of alcohol abuse. It refers to child sexual assault and violence against women. It looks at the difficulties faced by Aboriginal rape victims in the courts and calls for closed courts and support persons. Criminal injuries compensation it also discussed as problematic, as a result of a lack of understanding of indigenous culture, and explains that rape and incest are not part of Aboriginal traditions or customary law.
