Library-GSA Exhibit: #ConsentEd, by Eleanor McGrath

Sep 22, 2016 to Dec 21, 2016

Would you be happy with a grade of 57%? Most of us wouldn’t be. But Eleanor McGrath's research showed that this is what adults, under the age of 30, scored on average when asked about facts around sexual consent. With this disheartening statistic in mind, the #ConsentED exhibit is designed to increase viewers' knowledge of sexual consent facts and, more importantly, to start a conversation. So many people in McGrath's study said they did not know how or when, if ever, they learned about sexual consent.
