Rape And Consent Explained In 7 Simple Comics By Alli Kirkham

Rape is apparently an epidemic. There are notable celebrities, academics and business leaders who talk about the rape epidemic, some even calling it a “rape culture.” Quite rightly, people are terrified. And on both sides. The most complicated part about rape for people to understand is the issue of consent; is a “no” always a “no” even if the person changes their mind? What about alcohol and other drugs? How far is too far when it comes to consent… as in, if someone consents to kissing, how much further do they need consent to go to? Alli Kirkham has decided to answer these questions in comic form. These are a great guide to visually understanding issues of consent and how to keep yourself safe, regardless of whether you are male or female.
