Women's safety organisations want the NSW government to adopt a nine point plan that tackles sexual assault in a widely anticipated overhaul of consent laws.
The NSW Women's Alliance, which represents key women's safety groups, has recommended the government adopt an affirmative model of sexual consent.
That model means a person seeking consent has to have taken steps in words or actions to obtain it.
Women's Safety NSW, which is part of the alliance, said it expects the new laws will be discussed by the state's cabinet this week, six months after the Law Reform Commission finished its report.
The commission concluded that broad reforms are needed, including a review of the definition of consent.
Women's Safety NSW chief executive Hayley Foster told AAP she wants specialist courts to hear sexual assault matters, and comprehensive consent education provided in NSW schools.
Ms Foster said she has been calling for an overhaul of how consent is taught in schools for many years.
"There is a real problem when it comes to young males between 15 and 19 sexually offending, and it's young females who are primarily the victims, and we know that comprehensive consent education for young people can completely change their behaviour," she said.
Last month the women's safety organisations wrote to the NSW premier outlining their plan but Ms Foster said they have not yet received a comprehensive response.
"It's time for a comprehensive response to sexual assault" she said.
"We have to ensure our criminal justice system is capable of actually delivering justice if we want to hold sex abusers to account and prevent them from reoffending."
Women's Safety NSW and its partner agencies are also calling for specialisation of all courts hearing sexual assault matters.
"If we want to encourage complainants to come forward, we need to make it a safe and supported process," Ms Foster said.
She wants a model similar to that which is offered in the Child Sexual Offence Evidence Program, which uses specially trained prosecutors and judicial officers who Ms Foster says "are more equipped to deal with these matters ... and there are more protections for the victims".
The office of the NSW Attorney General has been contacted for comment.
