Top 10 Things You Need To Know About Consent

The #metoo movement has opened up a world-wide conversation about sexual assault and the culture that normalizes it. The media has served up dramatic examples of celebrities who got it wrong, but there’s still a lot of confusion about what consent—let alone enthusiastic consent—looks, feels, and sounds like.
