Australia: Sexual assault allegations being 'hijacked' by quota push, says Liberal Party VP

Article here. Excerpt:

'Federal Liberal Party vice president Karina Okotel has accused fellow party members of trying to "hijack" sexual assault allegations by female staffers to push for gender quotas within the party.

Ms Okotel, who describes the allegations as "horrendous", said the call from some within the Liberal Party to introduce quotas in the days since the former staffers came forward was "hugely disappointing" and argued that men were not inherently abusive.

Her comments, in an opinion piece for The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age, come ahead of a meeting of the party's federal executive on Friday, where it is expected to discuss a highly anticipated review of bullying and harassment within the party.'
