Ep. 82: Consent Culture and the Future (W/ Heather Davis)
We need to talk about sexual assault. From scandals involving Harvey Weinstein, Louis CK, Charlie Rose, and many more, women are stepping forward to name their accusers and confront powerful abusers. Furthermore, while these male abusers are more often than not surrounded by men that directly enable their abuse, there is a broader cultural paradigm whereby most men indirectly enable systems of abuse.
We talked to Heather Davis, an educator and activist that focuses on workshops revolving around consent and consent culture, to have a conversation about how to confront the abusive paradigms that create such a dangerous society for women.
