The unexpected consequences of age-of-consent laws
August 5, 2017 @ 10:45 am - 12:15 pm
The law tells young people when they can consent to have sex and with whom, decides what kinds of sexual expression are harmful to create or consume, and what kinds of information are inappropriate for young minds. These laws have unintended, and quite unexpected, consequences for youth, impeding their growth into sexually healthy adults. In this workshop we will talk about some of these laws, the unintended harms done, and how to advocate for change.
