Restore Women’s Right To Withdraw Consent

Target: Chuck Schumer, United States Senate Leader

Goal: Don’t deny women the right to withdraw consent after sex begins.

Women are being denied the right to change their mind during sex due to a decades-old North Carolina law. This law not only flippantly ignores the well-being and comfort of the women involved, but favors the rapist; many men have taken advantage of this law to force themselves on women, knowing that if they say yes even once before penetration occurs, they are not allowed to take it back.

The law is not only outdated, but heavily misogynistic; it is rape culture at work. Too many women have been denied justice for their rapes because of this loophole that states the desires of their partner come before their own well-being. This loophole should have never existed, women should have always had the right to change their minds at any point in time during sex.

Senator Jeff Jackson is working to repeal this law, and we must ensure that he is given the full support of other lawmakers as well as the House and the Senate. Sign this petition to demand this outdated and misogynistic law be destroyed immediately.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Senator Schumer,

A North Carolina lawmaker is working to change an outdated and misogynistic law that denies women the right to withdraw their consent during sex. According to this law, once penetration occurs, it is “too late” for the woman to change her mind, and as a result too many women have been denied justice for their rapes.

This law should have never existed, and it must be repealed as soon as possible. It is rape culture at work, women should not be forced to continue with a sexual encounter they are no longer comfortable with. This law enables sexual entitlement and takes the side of rapists, which is simply unacceptable.

Support Senator Jeff Jackson in having this law repealed as soon as possible. Women deserve better than to have their well-being and their needs dismissed because a man feels his pleasure comes first.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
