Joyce accuser to speak at function
The WA businesswoman who levelled sexual harassment allegations against former Nationals leader Barnaby Joyce will talk about her experience in public for the first time next month.
Catherine Marriott will speak at an event hosted by journalist and leader of the NOW Australia campaign against sexual Harassment, Tracey Spicer.
Ms Marriott has slammed the Nationals’ internal party processes for investigating alleged sexual harassment after an investigation by the NSW branch of the party reached no conclusion about her complaint about Mr Joyce after an eight-month process.
Mr Joyce strenuously denies any wrongdoing, and has described the allegations as “spurious and defamatory”.
Ms Marriott will appear at a Rural, Regional, Remote Women’s Network of WA function on October 31 to discuss her experience of making the complaint under the #USToo banner.
