Let’s have a real conversation about how our society’s messed up attitudes towards sex have a created a cultural of street harassment, unaddressed sexual assault on college campuses and an overall fear of education about sex in regards to young people.
1. How has the lack of sex education fed into the debate of #NotAllMen and #YesAllWomen?
2. The truth is, young people are having sex. How do we culturally and politically make our society more proactive in addressing the sexual health needs of young people?
