Royal commission the change Australia needs

Crikey readers talk women in cabinet, the royal commission into child sex abuse and why everyone thinks the Coalition is better at managing the economy.

Royal commission to change Australia 

Keith Thomas writes: Re. “‘I thought it was my fault’: victims begin their stories at abuse royal commission” (yesterday). This royal commission will change Australian society for the better for generations to come — not just for the victims, but for the institutions, the peace of mind of parents and for openness in society generally. I feel confident that many abusers have already been deterred from abuse and many children — totally ignorant of their close escapes — are today continuing their happy, innocent lives. I would nominate Julia Gillard, Peter Fox and Joanne McCarthy as Australians of the year.
