Marita giving her first major speech upon being recognised at the AMA the Australian Medical Association awards on April 29, 2022.
In Marita’s words: Hello world, l’m Marita Murphy. I was seven years old when l was sexually abused. Over forty years later, after my Mother was dead, and when I could no longer hold it in, I went to the Police.
When l first rang them l found l couldn’t utter a single word!! The Policeman kindly said “Lady I don’t know what’s happened to you but I think you need to see a counseller.”
I did that, but what I really needed was justice and to be heard.
