five fab things we can say to help create a #consentculture



five fab things we can say to help create a #consentculture

1. You never owe anyone your time and you should spend it with people you want to hang out with.

2. You get to choose who you want to show affection to/have sexual experiences with (be that hugging, kissing or otherwise).

3. Consent is important. No one has the right to touch you without your permission regardless of whether you are in a relationship, if you are intoxicated, if you feel pressured or otherwise.

4. All human beings deserve to be treated with respect and dignity, and if you see someone who is unable to care for themselves, look for a safe way to make sure they are okay.

5. Regardless of the choices you may make, I will always show up for you without judgement. I will always be honest. My love for you overrules everything else.

Great Sexpectations!

great sexpectationsOne Student co-founder Becca Tieder (@beccatalks) has traveled the nation addressing sexual assault, rape culture and gender norms. After speaking to over one million people, Becca has seen the ripple effect that follows after honest conversations about sexual assault, sex and relationships that are void of shame. This new program introduces conversation starters that encourage attendees to be better friends, partners and community members. We all have a role to play in creating a #consentculture and creating sexually empowered communities. From porn to purity rings there is tremendous pressure on people to meet sexual ideals. It’s time to have frank discussions about issues that may get in the way of expressing our own sexpectations and creating a #consentculture. Learning to turn our internal monologue into an external one: where we can express our feelings to partners and to build the skills to act on our gut instincts as an engaged bystander. This session encourages positive, open and honest conversations about sexual health to help create healthier relationships, engaged bystanders and communities that support survivors of sexual assault. This program opens the door to start powerful conversations and puts tools to help shift campus culture in the hands of students who can transform their communities. Walk in with desire to make your relationships and communities better — walk out a sexually empowered social change agent.

Get ready…











In a few weeks we will release our next campaign. We are very excited about what this conversation means for consent education. But in first….

It is time to:

–Acknowledge that rape culture exists.

–Take notice. What does rape culture look like and sound like?

–Take action. Social Change starts with a conversation.

–Support survivors. If someone tells you they were sexually assaulted, believe them.

Together we will create  #consentculture.

Let’s do this. #iamonestudent

What’s your Platform?

Here is the formal invitation from our new friends at Platform. If you can attend, please do. We think this will be a great space for conversation and innovation. If you cannot attend- reach out and engage with these social change agents. I know we are glad that we did.


Kelly & Becca


In city halls, state capitols and in the chambers of Congress, officials are making decisions about young women’s rights— without the input of young women. This needs to change. You are invited to join Platform, a new generation of women, to set a political agenda for the future of our country.

A convention will be held in Washington, DC from July 11 to July 13— just months before the general election. We are using this timing to our advantage because we believe that when we come together to say, “these are our issues and if you want our vote you must protect our rights,” we will have a profound impact.Throughout the convention, delegates will hear from SHEroes, including Senator Mazie HironoCongresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton and Feminist Majority Foundation Board Member Dee Martin, have the opportunity to learn about the issues from experts during workshops, write and debate a resolution modeled after the Declaration of Sentiments (the document that ignited the U.S. Women’s suffrage movement), and lobby Congress using that very resolution. Our workshop leaders include U.S. Department of Labor, ACLU, Generation Progress, RAINN, National Abortion Federation, AAUW, Quorum, and the Human Rights Campaign! Through these workshops we will work to highlight and address the different experiences of all who identify as women while still celebrating the bonds of sisterhood and the pursuit of progress.

This election cycle is too important for us to stay silent so let’s work together to protect our bodies, our lives, and our futures. For $150 (includes housing, metro ticket, and 2 meals) you can register now:!registration/dmmxp
