Sexual Consent, Journalism and the Pursuit of Nuance in Social Issues w/ Hannah Skewes
Hannah is a writer and advocate for mental health awareness and sexual assault prevention. She comes from a journalistic background and seeks the nuance in difficult social conversations. Hannah grew up in Mississippi in a somewhat conservative household and has learned the importance of creating space for productive dialogue where minds can be changed.
Since this conversation took place, Hannah and I hosted "Un/pact: a creative dialogue on consent" which was an extremely impactful evening. 10 performers shared personal stories on consent including topics like "hot consent", the gray spaces of power, how to ask for what you want, sexual assault, being a survivor, religion's impact on sex, and much more.
In this episode, Hannah details parts of her own story and what she learned from an abusive and coercive marriage. This is an important conversation that I encourage you to listen to.
