Creating A Culture Of Consent

Last year in Hollywood (hint: Harvey Weinstein) reminded us that some people do not seek our permission before doing things to us or on us. 

The reminder spurred further discussion of the need for a "consent culture" in the country.  And it goes way beyond interpersonal and sexual relationships. 

The myriad ways society could approach HOW we approach each other are contained in a new anthology called Ask: Building Consent Culture

Kitty Stryker is the editor.  She and contributing writer Cinnamon Maxxine visit the studio.
