In conversation with Jane Gilmore: Teaching Consent

Whitehorse Manningham Libraries

Event Date: 6 March 2023
Author / Presenters: Jane Gilmore

Teaching Consent tells the stories of children, teens, teachers, and educators in consent and respectful relationship classes.
Jane’s writing and research blends memoir, expertise, hilarious anecdotes, and poignant stories from both teachers and students, to offer an insight into playgrounds and classrooms that is a must-read for any parent or carer.
Teaching Consent addresses the importance of education for young and old…about sex, consent, respect, social media, pornography, bullying, sexuality, and gender diversity. It also explores the pressure on teachers, families, and students to get it done right.
Jane Gilmore has established a reputation as an author, journalist, feminist, sought-after-speaker, and consent educator.
She launched the FixedIt campaign, in 2014 as a response to the way the media reports on men’s violence against women. In 2019, her insights into men’s violence, women’s (mis)representation and the media were published in her debut book, Fixed It.

Jane’s work has appeared in a range of publications, including, The Age, The Sydney Morning Herald, The Guardian, The Saturday Paper, Crikey, Meanjin, News.com.au, The Daily Telegraph, SBS, Women’s Agenda, Queen Victoria Women’s Centre, Elle Magazine, Junkee, The Hoopla, Spook Magazine and the ABC.
Teaching Consent is her second non-fiction book and is published by Body Safety Australia
