Farrah Khan

Farrah Khan picked up a microphone to speak out about sexual assault as a teenager and has not put it down since. As a nationally recognized counsellor, educator, and policy advisor, she has spent two decades working to raise awareness about sexual violence. Farrah’s innovative research, passion, and sense of humour create an engaging dialogue that emphasizes pleasure and fun while addressing topics of consent and sexual assault prevention. She holds a Master of Social Work from the University of Toronto and is the inaugural Sexual Violence Support and Education Coordinator at Ryerson University. In her efforts to help create campuses where consent comes first, Farrah has developed innovative educational tools including a bystander intervention program and a colouring and activity book for survivors and allies. The colouring book, entitled We Believe You, has been used across North America by educational institutions and sexual assault crisis centres. She also mentors young feminist groups such as We Give Consent and femifesto. Recognizing the power of mainstream media in shaping conversations about violence, Farrah and femifesto researched and created “Use the Right Words: Media Reporting on Sexual Violence” as a guide for journalists. Use the Right Words has been used widely across North America by journalists, educators and translated into multiple languages. Due to Farrah’s knowledge and collaborative approach to addressing the systemic, community and personal barriers that survivors of sexual violence face, Farrah was named the co-chair of Ontario’s first permanent provincial roundtable on Violence Against Women in 2015. In 2016, she was also appointed to the Government of Canada’s Federal Strategy Against Gender-based Violence Advisory Council. On both the Roundtable and Council, Farrah provides high level advice to governments on emerging issues. Farrah is also a regular contributor to major news media including CBC’s The National, Toronto Star, and the Globe & Mail for her expertise in addressing violence against women.
