Show Notes

*Trigger Warning* In this episode we discuss topics relating to sexual violence and sexual harassment so please do not listen if you think these topics will be triggering for you.  

New Zealand Herald journalist, Katie Harris has been a name to watch in the field of journalism, she has been producing some incredibly hard hitting pieces on topics around sexual violence and sexual harassment. In this episode we discuss with Katie the lack of education that we have around consent, and the behaviours present in our society that propagate the rape culture we have in New Zealand. 

Although we have a long way to go, Katie also discusses some of the positive things that are happening around this topic such as what is believed to be the first sexual assault conviction in New Zealand for 'stealthing'.
