The Friends of the Library Lecture series for 2022 continues on Monday, 30 May 2022, with a talk by Prof Catriona Macleod entitled, “They all preached abstinence”: how school-based sexuality education fails South African youth.
The stakes of sexuality education in South Africa are high. Research shows that young people mostly feel disconnected from the messages of formal sexuality education. ‘Danger, disease and damage’ are emphasised in classes, and rigid gendered norms and heteronormativity are promoted. Life Orientation educators experience many challenges in teaching sexuality education. So, what is to be done?
