“I believe that all humans have a right to ownership over their body, over their mental, spiritual, emotional autonomy and consent is kind of a way to ensure that it’s not just us being autonomous everywhere but we are also respecting other people’s boundaries and right to be autonomous. My autonomy ends where yours begins.”Fran Liberatore
This is episode 93 and today I’m here with Fran Liberatore talking about Consent.
Fran is a writer, podcaster, Masters student and ex-educator, as well as an unschooling mother of two children. She advocates for children’s rights and consent-based everything! She lives between Bangkok and Maine.
Why: We explain what consent is and why it matters.
Adultism: We share how consent is connected to adultism.
Home: We walk through how we create a culture of consent in our homes.
Decisions: We cover how we make consent-based decisions.
Education: We discuss what it might look like to bring consent into education.
Ability: We speak to whether or not children are really able to consent and to what extent.
Boundaries: We address if consent means everything we do has to be arrived at through a collaborative process.
