“I did not realize that consent is more than someone not saying “no”. This is a little disturbing and I will not say why here. I am grateful that I have participated in this workshop.” -- Male participant, age 17, Bloor CI

Testimonial

“It was really helpful and scary to look at how black female bodies are perceived by the representations of us on magazines and online. I found that it was not something usually talked about in school but is the reality of our culture. Also, American Apparel ads are scary.”
- Female-identified participant, Age 16, Lakeshore C.I.
Collected after Media Lit: Spotlight on Rape Culture workshop.

Testimonial

“It made a very big impact on my life and the way I think about sexual activity and how I treat women now. I never knew that just cause you were dating didn’t mean you had consent all the time! I thought that because we were dating I could just do anything I wanted and she would be alright with it. But no, it opened my eyes and taught me that women have the right to say no.” - Male participant from Harbord C.I.
