Consent: HIV Non-Disclosure and Sexual Assault Law

A documentary film produced by the HIV Legal Network (formerly the Canadian HIV/AIDS Legal Network) and Goldelox Productions (2015)

In their own words, eight women — leading feminist scholars, attorneys and women living with HIV — shine a light on the problems of using sexual assault law to prosecute alleged non-disclosure of HIV. Does the legal concept of consent, intended to protect women’s sexual autonomy, in fact increase their risk of violence and discrimination when used to criminalize HIV?
