This week on Coronation Street, Amy Barlow’s (Elle Mulavney) awakening and realizing Aaron Sandford (James Craven) had sexually assaulted her will change her life for good.
After Amy and Aaron have a few drinks in the apartment, the incident will take place. Aaron climbs into Amy’s bed after she tells him she’s extremely inebriated and doesn’t feel well, and they begin kissing.
Amy eventually wakes up, groggy, and unable to recall how she got into bed.
Aaron admits to struggling as well, that things went too far, and that they shouldn’t have slept together as the young people assemble in Speed Daal for lunch.
As Amy reels in shock at the enormity of his revelation, she later tells Aaron that she was far too drunk to consent.
In order to tell this story accurately and sensitively, Coronation Street is working with a charity called The Schools Consent Project, which was established in early 2015 and sends legally trained volunteers into schools to deliver workshops on the legal definition of sexual consent and key sexual offences.
According to Monica Bhogal, director of The Schools Consent Project, “The Schools Consent Project firmly believes that learning about sexual consent laws allows young people to understand their rights and responsibilities and empowers young people by providing them with the skills, confidence, and knowledge they need to make safe, respectful, healthy choices around sexual consent.”
‘We are delighted to have been consulted on this storyline which conveys important messages around the topic of sexual consent with care and sensitivity. Its inclusion in such a wide-reaching show emphasises the crucial need for consent conversations and the power of consent education.’
