‘I used to pretend I was a piece of wood’: How a woman survived 30 years as her abusive father’s sex slave and gave birth to his four children… and she’s still so traumatised she’s ‘surprised people care’ about her story

  • Katherine was raped by her father for 30 years from the age of 13
  • He told her as a teen, ‘you’re damaged goods, no-one will want you now’
  • She gave birth to four of his children, including girl who died from genetic disabilities
  • Her harrowing story is told in the new book, Behind Closed Doors
  • Katherine is surprised by people’s kind wishes and that they care about her story 

From the age of 13 she was raped by her violent father thousands of times and became a prisoner in the home she shared with him, her mother and her brothers.

When she came home from school one day as a 13-year-old, he told her to go into the bedroom and undress.

‘You’re damaged goods,’ he said to her, ‘no one will want you now.’

In at least three towns of Victoria’s Latrobe Valley, the man aggressively subdued his daughter and made her his sexual slave.

Across central Gippsland, he pursued her. Over the years, the girl tried to run away. The Victorian Welfare Department opened a file on her, but her father wouldn’t let up and she was always returned to him.

Stolen innocence: Katherine as a toddler, pictured with her arm around her younger brother, was first raped by her violent alcoholic father at the age of 13 and the abuse continued for almost 30 years during which she gave birth to four  of her father's children, only escaping from him when she reached her forties

On one occasion when she refused him, a court later heard, he grabbed her around the throat, pushed her against the wall, punched her three times in the stomach and said, ‘I’ll teach you to knock me back’.

She would later give birth to four of her father’s children and he had such absolute control over her that it was only when she reached her 40s that she was able to escape his clutches, and only then in the middle of the night.

She had been a pretty, blonde little girl with artistic talent and a bright mind, but the incestuous attacks by her controlling father – he raped her almost every day and sometimes twice daily – robbed her of a life of her own.

Now the woman whose identity cannot be revealed, except at ‘Katherine X’, has been able to tell her own story.

She finally found the courage to have her father prosecuted and he is serving 22 years in a Victorian prison. At the time of his eventual court case, the woman’s father had been hounding her sexually for two-thirds of her life.

Now with the help of Victorian journalist Sue Smethurst, Katherine’s story has been published by Simon and Schuster in a new book, Behind Closed Doors.

Ms Smethurst said that since news of Katherine’s story had begun filtering out, that members of the public had been emailing her with kind wishes and messages of hope.

‘And she can’t believe that people are so nice and that they care. She has been so touched,’ the author told Daily Mail Australia.

‘She is overwhelmed by the response. For a long time she was just a shell of a person and she believed she would never be able to escape this monster, she was so frightened of him.

‘She is damaged, but she has so much love for her sons. She is a very witty, very bright woman. Who knows what sort of life or career she could have had if this hadn’t happened to her?’

Catherine’s story, which Ms Smethurst said is ‘ a very harrowing read’, begins with the first occasion on which she is raped.

Catherine was the only daughter of four children who lived with their mother and violent alcoholic father mostly on welfare in regional Victoria.

The boys and their mother were beaten by the father and Katherine’s childhood was brightened by visits with her maternal grandparents and her time at school, the only places where she felt safe.

Katherine’s parents endured a stormy marriage and at one point, when she was just 12 years old, her mother took on a boyfriend. That man was the first to rape her.

A year later Katherine’s father raped her for the first time and it became so common she thought it happened to everyone.

‘I thought it was normal,’ Katherine said. She would lie in her bedroom and then hear her drunken father staggering up the hallway to her room.

Inside that house and two other houses where the cash-strapped family moved to, all within the La Trobe Valley, Catherine’s father raped her.

‘I was abused in so many places it wasn’t funny,’ she said. But she always made sure that neither her brothers nor he mother caught sight of the abuse. ‘I was the brunt of everything.’

Catherine was a slightly overweight, meek teenager who feared her tall, bearded father. She coped with the continual rapes by mind control.

‘I used to pretend I was a piece of wood. Your could float. It took you somewhere else.’ When she ran away and was placed in girls’ homes and called ‘a slut’ or wayward’, Katherine would tell welfare officers that her father was raping her, but no-one took any action.

Still living at home into her twenties, Katherine gave birth to to four of her father’s children. None of the children had a father’s name on their birth certificate.

 A former friend and neighbour later said the children call the man ‘Daddy’ and that Katherine would refuse to go out without her father’s permission.

Over the years of living in the Latrobe Valley with her family, Katherine would periodically run away and tell welfare authorities that she was being raped by her father, but she would just be called 'wayward' and be returned to her tormentor for a continuation of the rapes and the violence

‘She was petrified her children would be taken away by her father or that he would kill them,’ Sue Smethurst said. ‘She was frightened. She was basically a shell.’

But then two things happened. Katherine gave birth in 2001 to her fourth child, a daughter, who died soon after birth from severe brain and respiratory deformities.

Katherine was heartbroken by her daughter’s death, but ‘it gave her the strength of spirit to say “enough is enough”.’

Katherine had also been seeing a health professional for her epilepsy and had begun confiding in the woman, who Smethurst calls Jane in the book, and Jane secretly began to hatch an escape plan with Katherine.

A team of police and counsellors whisked Katherine by night off to a safe house on the other side of the state, and thereafter rescued her sons.

Initially, ‘very, very fragile’, Katherine took months of counselling but was eventually strong enough to make a statement about her father o police.

When they wen to knock on his door and read out the charges against him, he remained devoid of emotion.

His trial prosecutor later told the court the man had remained ‘wholly absent’ of remorse and claimed: ‘I tried to stop, but she said no’.

In February 2010, after he saw a string of witnesses against him arrive at his committal hearing, Katherine’s father changed his initial plea of not guilty to guilty and was sentenced to 22 years and five months for 13 counts of sexually assaulting his daughter.

One count stood for 700 offences and the other charges for hundreds of rapes, amounting to several thousand over almost 30 years.

Katherine sued the Victorian government for failing in its duty of care to her and has received a confidential compensation payment.

She has only revealed her son’s parentage to one of her boys and says ‘my sons didn’t choose the way they came into this world and they should never be judged for something they had no control over. My job is to make sure they live happy, healthy lives and become whatever they dream of’.

She says in the book ‘Life will never be the same, but we’ll get there. I put my boys first.’

Sue Smethurst said anyone who wants to wish Katherine well can email her at sue@suesmethurstmedia.com
