Exposure Listens: what consent means and why it’s important

November 16, 2022

In this video Barnet and Southgate College students explore different meanings of consent

In this episode of Exposure Listens, six young people explore different aspects of consent, from agreeing to a touch on the shoulder through to a sexual act.

They discuss how everyone has different boundaries and speak about the importance of clear communication, trust and the right to change your mind at any point; and that ‘No means No!’

The group talk about how they have navigated their experiences of sexual harassment. They highlight the differences and effects that gender plays on how consent is perceived and negotiated.
