Jesse Wells Discusses Sexual Consent

*The following story contains triggering and/or sensitive material


Artist and writer, Jesse Wells, shares with Sassy her project, which aims to change the conversations around sexual consent and the issues of harassment and rape. Creating a storybook called ‘The Barbie Collection’, Jesse used dolls to create a narrative that both educates as well as expels the silence which surrounds rape and sexual abuse. We asked her to share with us her own story to understand the catalyst for ‘The Barbie Collection’.
