In 2021 launched a survey to start a research project into consent culture and sexual harassment at the University of Bristol.
The research was commissioned by Jason Palmer, Equality, Liberation and Access Officer 2019-2021 and follows on from Bristol SU’s 2018 Let’s Talk about Sex survey which reported that over half of students who completed the survey had experienced sexual harassment.
885 students completed the initial online self-selection survey which formed the first part of the ‘No means No’ research, and has provided a series of recommendations for Bristol SU and the University of Bristol to work towards.
We released the results of the research and the recommendations in a report in November.
After completing the first stage of our research, we’re conducting further research into the following topics:
• Consent education
• The role of student societies and sports clubs in preventing sexual misconduct
