TCW Chat: Judicaelle Irakoze

  In 2019, we started TCW Chat, a series of conversations with various people discussing topics around consent, sexual assault and the intersection of their work and life around these topics.

Back to the Basics. Let’s Talk Consent!

As important as consent is and as talked about as it seems to be, we still donʼt talk about it enough, so itʼs understandable if youʼre not completely sure of what it is and what it is not. Because of the way consent is received whenever it is brought up, the discourse around it is somewhat pacifying but thatʼs the wrong way to talk about it.
