    Shocking sexual harm statistics have sparked calls for better consent education

    Shocking sexual harm statistics have sparked calls for better consent education


    The Ministry of Justice reveals just 31 per cent of people charged with rape were convicted last year.

    It's a ten year low - and compares with a 71 per cent conviction rate for other types of criminal charges.

    Rape Prevention Education's Executive Director claims some juries don't understand consent laws.

    Debbi Tohill says we need better funding for education starting in schools - to lay out the basics.

    She says you can't consent if you're under the age of 16, are inebriated, have been coerced or threatened.
