For as long as women have sought autonomy over their bodies, those in positions of power have dismissed them as hormonal, hysterical, irrational and crazy. But now that dialogues around consent have infiltrated our newsfeeds, our classrooms, our workplaces and even the corridors of Parliament, we may have reached a tipping point. To create real social change, it’s important we demystify the challenges around seeking consent and determining our personal boundaries and believe it or not, that doesn’t have to be awkward.
Join activist Chanel Contos, author and broadcaster Yumi Stynes and journalist Avani Dias for a conversation that is curious and unapologetic as we learn how to navigate the yes, no and everything in between.
This event is presented by the UNSW Centre for Ideas and UNSW Arts, Design & Architecture as part of Social Sciences Week.
