10% of survey complete.
Equality Rights Alliance’s Young Women’s Advisory Group (YWAG) wants to know what you think about sex education. In this survey, we are interested in your experiences of sex education at school, in particular at secondary school.
 
Sex education is classes or sessions covering topics such as puberty, safe sex and contraception, reproductive and sexual health, decision-making, gender and sexuality, consent and relationships. It might have been taught by a teacher, an external facilitator, an outside peer or chaplain or religious figure. We are also interested in what you would like to see taught to other young people.
 
The survey is for young women, including those who identify as women, cis* women, trans women, non-binary and trans-femme identifying young people aged 16-21. If you don't fit this criteria, you will not be able to complete the survey. 

*Cisgender is when a person's gender identity and expression matches the sex they were assigned at birth. For example, if a person identifies as a woman and was assigned female at birth. 

There  may  be  some  questions  that  feel embarrassing, shameful  or  shame  to  answer, it’s okay to feel this way and all questions are voluntary.

This a confidential survey and everything you share is anonymous, because we do not collect personal details like your name, address, school or contact details. This is also a voluntary survey. You can tell us as much or as little as you like.

The answers you give will help us understand what sex education is like for young women and non-binary young people in Australia. YWAG believes that it is important for young women and non-binary young people’s voices to be heard! Your responses will be collected and used in a report, which will be sent to politicians, teachers, health professionals, and others. YWAG will use some of the responses in their social media activities.
