Consent: HIV Non-Disclosure and Sexual Assault Law, a screening and panel discussion.
The film, Consent, is a powerful new documentary on HIV criminalization. In their own words, eight women – leading feminist scholars, attorneys, and women living with HIV – shine a light on the problems of using sexual assault law to prosecute alleged non-disclosure of HIV. We will also include excerpts of the film Positive Women: Exposing Injustice.
The event was at the Rose Auditorium (41 Cooper Square)
The panelists were : Robert Suttle, Sero Project; Cecile Kazatchkine, Canadian HIV/AIDS Legal Network; Jessica Whitbread, International Community of Women Living with HIV; and Marama Pala, INA (Māori, Indigenous & South Pacific) HIV/AIDS Foundation
It was presented by the Canadian HIV/AIDS Legal Network with the Cooper Union and the WHAT WOULD AN HIV DOULA DO? collective.
