Response: Sexual Consent Law Reform

Publication date: 
July 2021

ACTCOSS provided feedback on Dr Marisa Paterson's exposure draft of the ACT's Crimes (Consent) Amendment Bill 2021, which introduces a new definition of consent based on free and voluntary agreement. We support the Bill yet request further clarity and consultation regarding potential perverse outcomes on marginalised people.
