Consent underpins all types of relationships, from friendship to collegial, platonic to romantic. It is an important topic for everyone to consider, raising questions like: when can I say no? How do I know when to say yes? How do I talk about consent?
Luckily, you’re not alone in figuring out the answers. Consent experts Dr Melissa Kang and Yumi Stynes will guide you through the issues so that when the time comes, you’ll know what to say and how to say it.
Most people know Dr Melissa Kang as the longest-serving expert behind the iconic Dolly Doctor column, but she’s also a writer, practising adolescent health doctor and honorary associate professor. Melissa has co-written, with Yumi Stynes, Welcome to Consent and Welcome to Your Period.
