Research Question


Through this manifesto I will uncover the layers that have contributed to why sex without full fledged consent has become something that almost every girl experiences. I will look into the history of sex in New Zealand, the porn industry, how the media influences social norms around both sex and consent and finally what New Zealand schools and parents choose to teach about sex and consent. All these areas must be explored to truly understand the implication of sex without consent, which leads to my question:


‘How can visual communication design create a new social norm that prioritizes consent and reveals how uncomfortable, invasive and detrimental non-consensual sexual contact is’.
