Uprise Radio - Episode 43 - Respectful Relations, Consent and Leadership in Victorian High-schools; why milkshakes and sexual assault shouldn't be mixed.

Wednesday, 19 May 2021 - 5:30pm to 6:00pm
School girls from Adelaide High walked out in support of better consent education for students.

James and Jackson are joined by two high school educators, who have been doing some ongoing work with teenagers about respectful relationships. This has become a hot button issue in many high-school with many young people inspired by the actions of Grace Tane and Brittany Higgens, and many others who have shared their stories via social media as part of the Me Too and March4Justice events. The shameful accusations levelled at Cristian Porter and  his shameless response, alongside the sexist bumbling of scotty from marketing has highlighted the the inadequacy of political leaders to change their own workplace cultures, let alone provide any justice to women who experience sexual violence. Schools are more than ever being asked to educate children on these matters - but are they getting the support they need from Government?
