In this groundbreaking new look at rape edited by writer and activist Jaclyn Freidman and Full Frontal Feminism and He’s A Stud, She’s A Slut author Jessica Valenti, the way we view rape in our culture is finally dismantled and replaced with a genuine understanding and respect for female sexual pleasure. Feminist, political, and activist writers alike will present their ideas for a paradigm shift from the “No Means No” model—an approach that while necessary for where we were in 1974, needs an overhaul today.Yes Means Yes will bring 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 aims to have 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. With commentary on public sex education, pornography, mass media, Yes Means Yes is a powerful and revolutionary anthology.

4.0 Yes Means Yes!: Visions of Female Sexual Power and A World Without Rape
A mind-blowing collection of essays about how “rape culture” affects women -- and men -- and how seeing and rebuilding the world in terms of “consent culture” would empower us all.

Perspectives on rape culture, limitations of the "rape culture" construction, and what to do about it. Some of the essays in this book were much better than others, but I gave it four stars anyway because the ones that were good were REALLY good.
