Library-GSA Exhibit: #ConsentEd, by Eleanor McGrath

Sep 22, 2016 to Dec 21, 2016

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.
