Sexual Consent Explained Through Comics

Artist Alli Kirkham’s comic illustrations highlight sexual consent issues through everyday situations that are easier for everyone to understand

The recent verdict on the Mahmood Farooqui case has highlighted the fact that sexual consent has unfortunately become one of the most controversial areas of discussions when it comes to talking about sexual violence and rape. Modern day sexual offenders often tend to transgress boundaries stating that the terms of consent were unclear or misjudged. In order to combat these relatively flimsy excuses for not understanding ‘No’, artist Alli Kirkham found a creative and instructive way to clear the question up with a series of 7 comics, illustrating smart allegories of sexual consent issues. Through everyday situations, the artist makes easier for people to understand when, why and how consent can wrongly be taken for granted.
