Intoxication is not Sexual Consent

WA is one of the only jurisdictions in Australia that does not acknowledge how intoxication affects the ability of a person to consent to sexual acts in its Criminal Code. I believe that all Western Australians should receive the same protections as the rest of Australia regarding their right to freely and voluntarily given consent.

WA is currently reviewing its sexual assault laws. WA Consent has made a submission and will continue to advocate for an amendment to Western Australia's intoxication and consent laws. 

Please sign the petition and spread awareness to this legislative gap!
