Writing Workshop Wednesdays (25)

The other night I attended a talk by Keith Edwards, Campus Speaker and Educator, at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, home of the e, at the invitation of woman blessing Sarah K.  An informative, engaging speaker, Edwards stressed the importance of a proactive approach to rape versus simply a reactive stance whereas the former demands an end to rape and the latter assumes the inevitable existence of rape.  Brilliant.

During his presentation, Edwards outlined the definition of informed consent, a term which should be a staple in everyone’s vocabulary.

So, for today’s Writing Workshop Wednesdays, define informed consent.  If this term is unfamiliar to you in regards to sexual activity, take the time and do your research and then share this meaning with others.  Take the proactive approach.
