Jenny Leong: NSW Petition for Consent Education

Just one week after the rape allegations made by former Liberal Party staffer Brittany Higgins, an online petition circulated by a former Sydney schoolgirl has garnered more than 3000 testimonies of sexual assault from both current and former private school students. It has called for more thorough and earlier sexual education about consent; acting as a national wake-up call to the grave inadequacies within not only consent education, but also legislation.

Jenny Leong MP, Member for Newtown, has advocated for the need for urgent consent law reform in NSW and spoke with 2ser Breakfast’s Alex James.
