21/09 Podcast: Let’s Talk about Yes!

21 september 2021 08:00 t/m 23:55 - Door: Communication | Zet in mijn agenda

In this podcast episode of Let’s Talk About X, we will talk with Norbert, Amnesty International campaign manager and Fenna, activist leader in Delft. They are part of the #Let’sTalkAboutYes campaign, striving for more awareness about sexual consent among students.

With the following action week (20/09 - 24/09) in mind, Norbert and Fenna come to speak about consent, the current legislation and their campaign.

About the Campaign
The #LetsTalkAboutYes campaign builds on years of work and activism against sexual violence in different countries and strives for consent-based legislation and a consent normative culture. With success, on the 8th of March 2021, caretaker minister Grapperhaus of Justice and Security, has made a new draft legislation. It states that all forms of involuntary sex can be criminalized.

More and more countries in Europe are changing their legal definition of rape to one based on consent instead of violence – but there’s still a long way to go. The #LetsTalkAboutYes campaign wants to help by opening up the conversation and focussing on consent in a positive way.
