Yes Means Yes!

Yes Means Yes!

Visions of Female Sexual Power and A World Without Rape

This groundbreaking look at rape, edited by writer and activist Jaclyn Freidman and Sex Object author Jessica Valenti, dismantles the way we view rape in our culture and replaces it with a genuine understanding and respect for female sexual pleasure.

In the original edition, feminist, political, and activist writers alike presented their ideas for a paradigm shift from the “No Means No” model–and the results were the groundbreaking shift to affirmative consent (“Yes Means Yes,” as coined by the book) that we know today.

With a timely new introduction, refreshed cover, and the timeless contributions of authors from Kate Harding to Jill Filipovic, Yes Means Yes brings to the table a dazzling variety of perspectives and experiences focused on the theory that educating all people to value female sexuality and pleasure leads to viewing women differently, and ending rape. Yes Means Yes has radical and far-reaching effects: from teaching men to treat women as collaborators and not conquests, encouraging men and women that women can enjoy sex instead of being shamed for it, and ultimately, that our children can inherit a world where rape is rare and swiftly punished.
