VIDEO: Sex education in crisis

by in Research.

Dr. Jill McDevitt is a sexologist in the U.S. working to challenge what she views as an inadequate sex education system.¬†She points out that the current system not only does a disservice to generations of people, it provides practically no services at all and can result in damaging attitudes towards women’s health. McDevitt uses innovative tactics across social media and in classroom and home settings to encourage people to question what they have been taught, and to achieve her vision of comprehensive sex education.
