Grace Under Fire, a documentary short from the Victorian Women’s Trust, shines a light on the hidden epidemic of workplace sexual harassment facing young women in regional and rural Australia. Recent research by Australian National University academic Dr. Skye Saunders shows that 73 per cent of women in rural and regional Australia experience workplace sexual harassment.
Inspired by the book Whispers from the Bush by Dr. Skye Saunders, Grace Under Fire tells the story of 20-year-old law student Grace Bramwell, who was forced to confront workplace sexual harassment in her hometown in Gippsland, Victoria.
