How Sex Ed Can End Child Sexual Abuse

The leading conversations about sexual assault/abuse are framed around power and control: sexual assault and abuse have less to do with the sex and more to do with power. Whether we agree with this long-standing idea or not, we must agree that SEX cannot be eliminated for the conversation of SEXual abuse, SEXual assault and rape culture. The aftermath of Child Sexual Abuse (CSA) or sexual violence has tremendous effects on our sex(uality), our ability to form relationships and navigate safer sex. How can comprehensive sex education be a tool to end child sexual abuse? What ideas do we have culturally about teaching sex ed to children? How can sex ed foster reproductive justice for everyone? Join in the discussion to dissect this topic, share ideas, and engage in learning more about “the talk” and how to use it as a tool for empowerment and ending CSA.
