Welcome to the Fulcrum’s latest endeavour—our blog! As an editorial board, we hear about a lot of stuff on campus that we don’t report on. This blog will serve as an alternative news source for students, for all of the extra stuff we can’t report on in the paper. News about events happening on campus, in Ottawa, and even in our offices will be broadcast here from all of the editors on the Fulcrum’s staff!
Consent is Sexy Week begins today
Hosted by the Women’s Resource Centre, today marks the beginning of Consent is Sexy Week, an event that “strives to create spaces were students can gain a broader understanding of how consent narratives, sex-positivity, and challenging rape culture all come together as a means of ending sexual violence.” Including workshops and drop-in events, this week is sure to get students thinking about what constitutes consent and why “no” can take many different forms. Be sure to check out this Thursday’s issue of the Fulcrum, which will feature an article [about the week’s events and why consent is an important factor in preventing a culture of rape.
