This week Shelleena and Nneka are joined by the @WomenatcentrE team to talk about consent! Karia, Nicole, and Amanda join our co-hosts to chat about what consent means and the ways in which standard definitions can be limiting or problematic, due to the complexities of sex and sexual relationships. Consent is a complex topic and as we talked, we realized we don’t have all the answers! But, we have to be willing to have these tricky, messy conversations and lean into the discomfort of discussing consent with our families, children, friends, and partners. We end by sharing Planned Parenthood’s FRIES model of consent to use as a great starting point!
This week we’re drinking Two Oceans Sauvignon Blanc. We gave this wine a buzz rating of 3.4/5.
