About

Chanel Contos founded Teach Us Consent, a campaign that mandated consent education in Australia. Chanel has worked closely with politicians from across the political spectrum, including Prime Ministers to achieve this. Chanel was the recipient of the Australian Human Rights Commissions Young People’s Medal in 2021 for this work, and in 2023 she was named NSW Young Women of the Year for her persistent efforts towards eradicating rape culture.

Chanel has also been presented a Diana Award, the most prestigious accolade a young person can receive for their humanitarian work and in 2022 she was listed as one of BBC’s 100 inspiring and influential women worldwide. Chanel has a Masters in Gender, Education, and International Development from University College London and was recently appointed by Julia Gillard to Chair the Global Institute for Women’s Leadership’s Youth Advisory Committee. Her book 'Consent Laid Bare' is out now.
