Sexual Consent and Disability - A Talk with Prof. Jasmine Harris

12:10PM to 1:00PM

Baker Hall 122

"Our nation is engaged in deep debate over sexual consent. But to date the discussion has overlooked sexual consent’s implications for a key demographic: people with mental disabilities, for whom the reported incidence of sexual violence is three times that of the nondisabled population." In her recent NYU Law Review article, Prof. Jasmine Harris of the UC Davis School of Law calls for a reassessment of the legal community's conception of sexual consent as it pertains to disability. Join us as she details her research and illuminates an oft forgotten set of lived experiences.
