It's frightening to see on Australian news hundreds of young women coming forward about being sexually assaulted in high school. These same women and their peers are calling for better education on consent and issues about sex. More and more people are being exposed to sex at an earlier age and it's distorting our understanding of what it is and our value placed on individuals versus our needs.
Recently, as I was reading over articles and watching the news about the tragic death of George Floyd, something caught my attention. A reporter was standing by the main street giving viewers an update of what was happening in New York when a protestor walks by and you could just make out what he was saying: “This will never end.”
One of my favourite Australian TV dramas of all time is Wentworth. It has action, suspense, lies and betrayal, overcoming adversities, and of course, the strength of the show lies in its exploration of the psyche of its main characters.
