Rape & Consent Explained Using 7 Simple Comic Illustrations 2020

Published on

One of the most controversial points in the modern discussion of rape is consent – by failing to communicate, rapes can sometimes occur without the rapist even understanding what they’ve done or why the victim feels the way they do. That’s why Alli Kirkham started a simple comic illustrations series about rape and consent.

Comic artist Alli Kirkham helped clear the question up with a series of 7 comics that illustrate sexual consent issues with everyday situations that are easier for everyone to understand. The comics series blew the internet with a rush.
