I'm grateful that your alleged attacker was arrested – even if it only happened two days after your death.
I am devastated that you allegedly had to live your last minutes alive undergoing such an ordeal that the courts have ruled out leaking any more information on the matter.
I'm sorry that the person who did this was able to do it.
But what I’m really sorry about is that we didn’t manage to save your life. I, along with the majority of Australian women and men feel guilt in my stomach because despite living in an era with the greatest security technology to date, we couldn’t stop your alleged attacker. We couldn’t predict his movements. What we could and can still do now though, is spread awareness. Teach our sons that it’s not okay to harm women, give fellow uni students and females in your age bracket the tools they need to feel safe no matter what time they leave their front door. To you Aiia I am sorry, but we as a nation will all be sorrier if we allow violence against women to continue.
