21 Men And Women Say Why Sexual Consent Is Important
"Why is consent important?"
1. Earlier this week, Pause Play Stop, a UK campaign to raise awareness of active consent, was launched.
3. The campaign aims to encourage people to talk about the importance of sexual consent and how it's crucial in reducing rape and sexual assault incidents.
5. Pause Play Stop was launched by Sarsas (formally Bristol Rape Crisis), which wanted to tackle the campaigns that often put the blame on victims, or "focus on dissuading people from drinking, going out, and enjoying themselves".
Sarsas (Somerset and Avon Rape and Sexual Abuse Support) describes itself as a "specialist support service for women and girls in Bath, Bristol, North East Somerset, North Somerset, Somerset, or South Gloucestershire, who have experienced any form of sexual violence, at any point in their lives".
