The AS Gender and Sexuality Equity Center (GSEC) is taking a stand against sexual assault. In October 2014, GSEC’s Women’s Program developed a mini video series on the topic of consent. The videos were released over a period of three weeks during the fall semester, each premiering at the center’s weekly Feminist Friday event in Trinity Commons before being posted online.
The full-length version of the series highlights the relevancy of consent on college campuses by revealing alarming statistics and calling to attention the seriousness of this issue. It breaks down the definition and concept of consent and concludes with how to recognize consent, as well as how to give and receive it.
It is imperative to recognize that anyone can take action and join the movement. Ask for consent!
