Whoa whoa whoa. On Sunday night, I watched Promising Young Woman, a dark comedy thriller about sexual consent and assault. Cassie (played by Carey Mulligan) was traumatized by an event that happened in med school and is seeking acknowledgement — and barring that, revenge. The day after I watched it, I felt consumed by it — thinking back to experiences in my life and also thinking deeply about how to raise boys who understand consent and how to stand up to friends doing something wrong. (Here’s a past post about teaching little kids about consent.) I’d HIGHLY recommend this brilliant gut punch of a movie.
