Women’s Work instrumental in developing pioneering consent lessons now used globally!

May 4, 2022

Women's Work has partnered with KT Consent to create a new model of lessons aimed at educating young people around consent and healthy relationships.

The lesson plans focus around the award winning¹ shorting film ‘Keep Breathing’, which was created in partnership with Women’s Work, Emmeline Hartley & award winning actor Damien Molony in 2019. ‘Keep Breathing’ is a short film that explores the nuances and grey areas around sexual consent as two characters remember a night they spent together very differently.

Since producing and co-writing the film, Emmeline Hartley has partnered with Rebecca Jennings to start KT Consent. Their focus is to provide high quality, age-appropriate lesson plans, resources and presentations based around healthy relationships, permission seeking and consent.

The pioneering lessons and resources have already been distributed in parts of the UK, as well as reaching more than 4000 educational settings in the US, Australia and the UK combined via Clickview.au.

The package of resources will continue to be expanded upon and KT Consent hope to film more content in the very near future.
