Why didn’t she just say no?

Why didn’t she just say no?

It’s hard to believe but there are still men out there saying stupid things like “Why didn’t she just say no?”



Someone tweeted these today and it really hit home. People don’t understand consent isn’t just the absence of no. There is just so much more to the argument that isn’t being said. I hope these headlines will help more men understand just how bad things are.



Just because a woman doesn’t say no doesn’t give men a free pass. Sometimes they don’t want to say anything. Just look at what happened to those women who did say no. They were brutally beaten or in some cases killed.

It’s time to spread the word – sure we all know that no means no but now men need to understand that unless a woman specifically says yes, then the answer is no.
