'My Costume Is Not Consent': OK Group Campaigns Against Sexual Assault On Halloween

Posted: Updated:
NORMAN, Oklahoma -

An Oklahoma group started a campaign to warn of sexual assault against those in costumes on Halloween.

According to the OU Daily, The Women’s Outreach Center’s Eli Sullivan started a campaign called “My Costume is Not Consent” to address potential sexual assault on Halloween. 

Sullivan told the OU Daily that through One Sooner, an advisory committee she is in charge of, she and other student leaders across OU campus discuss key issues on campus. This month is sexual assault.

Sullivan said the campaign is not telling any students how to dress on Halloween, but she wants to inform students that certain costumes do not mean sexual consent, no matter how provocative they may be.

Males are included in this issue, though females are more frequently the victims of sexual assault, Sullivan said.
