Chanel Contos has won an Australian human rights award for her work in standing up against abuse culture.

The advocate of sexual consent was awarded the young people’s medal by the Australian Human Rights Commission on Friday.

The accolade recognises Contos for helping lead a national reckoning with sexual assault.

Her petition for earlier sex education in schools inspired hundreds of former Sydney schoolgirls to come forward about their experience with sexual assault this year.
