Getting Consent

What does consent look like, and how does it work?

In this installment of her series, our very own Erin McKelle argues that part of the reason why people are so bad at getting consent is because they don’t know what consent looks like.

Watch as she talks through ways to approach the topic with partners and explains, plainly and simply, what consent really is.
