: No is a Complete(ly Rude) Sentence

Women's Resource Centre at University of Calgary
Refusing anything - let alone sex - is rarely something straightforward or simple (even though we are often told it is, and to “just be more assertive"). Come to this workshop where we’ll discuss refusals, what they look like, and the research that reminds us that even gently refusing something is still hearable as a refusal.

This event is part of the Ask First, Creating a Culture of Consent project. Ask First is A Quality Money project, brought to you by your Students’ Union.
