    In the last 48 hours, more than 4,000 new allegations of sexual assaults in school communities have been published by a former New South Wales student, Chanel Contos.

    The young Australian, who now lives in London, launched an online petition two weeks ago calling on private schools to do a better job educating their students about sex and consent.

    It received an overwhelming response – a torrent – containing thousands of firsthand accounts of harassment and rape.
