Scarlette, consent and victim blaming

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:13 pm on 5 August 2016

The allegations against Chief's rugby players over their treatment of a stripper they hired to perform for them, has sparked a national conversation about consent.

The stripper, who wants to be known only as Scarlette says members of the team touched her inappropriately at a party on Monday despite her consistently saying NO.

Feminist commentator and Massey University lecturer Deborah Russell says the issue has also exposed some concerning attitudes and victim-blaming.
