Can Money Buy Consent?
As part of our campaign for Sexual Assault Awareness Month, we partnered with actress and political activist Ashley Judd (voiceover) to talk about "consent" in the sex trade. We explore the intersection of sexual abuse and the commercial sex trade which is inherently intertwined. The sex trade is one of the most exploitive, abusive and sexually violent industries worldwide and so we must ask ourselves... can money buy consent?
