What is consent?


Video: We all have a role in contributing to a culture of consent.

Consent means someone freely agrees to engage in a certain act. It’s a non-negotiable part of sexual activity. In other words, if consent isn’t present, it’s sexual violence.

Consent is:

  • Clear
  • Freely Given
  • Current
  • Ongoing
  • Changeable
