Feminist porn education in school starting this fall

Published 12 August 2022 at 08.03

The change means the focus will be on “consent” and building support for the feminist consent legislation introduced a few years ago.

According to the Swedish National Agency for Education, from this autumn the teaching must also “develop the students’ critical approach to representations of relationships and sexuality in various media and contexts, including in pornography”.

– It has never been so clearly written in the curriculum that you must gain knowledge about, for example, porn, says gender researcher Nina Rung to SVT.

– If you are 15 years old and in your first relationship, what should you know about what is actually violence? Is it ok for someone to call you derogatory words, push you, pull your hair or strangle you, says Nina Rung.

All teachers will now have to teach the messages.

– Regardless of whether you have maths or sports, sexuality, consent and relationships have to be included. That is what the new curriculum is, says Nina Rung.
