Participant CMI Survey

Consent is "the ability to have agency over one's own body and articulate one's own preferences regarding what is and isn't acceptable"

Participant CMI Survey

Consent is "giving permission! In the area of sexuality it is giving permission between partners".

Participant CMI Survey

Consent is " not being forced to do something that makes you feel uncomfortable or unsafe".

"I try to ensure my 15 month old knows her body is hers, to educate her that she can say NO when she does not want someone to touch her".
