Publisher: Edinburgh University Press
Country of Publication: UK
Format: Hardback
Price: £85.00



Designs a new feminist framework to move the conversation around sex, consent and justice forward.

  • Engages with a range of traditional and social media outputs including The Atlantic, The Guardian, The Conversation and Aeon, Twitter hashtags including #MeToo, #TimesUp and Twitter users like @rosemcgowan, @ljeomaOluo and @TaranaBurke
  • Analyses case studies of Avital Ronell, Aziz Ansari, Jian Ghomeshi, Harvey Weinstein and Louis CK Unpacks two debates: what is permissible and desirable (as opposed to unlawful and unacceptable) sexual behaviour, and what constitutes justice in relation to gender-based sexual violence
  • Proposes concrete legislative and policy changes and examines the necessary cultural changes needed to retain a progressive conception of sexual relations and consent
  • Looks at sexual assault law in the US and the differences adopted within different state jurisdictions
  • Applies law, legal analysis, sociological methods and theories, and feminist praxis to the study of a central contemporary debate

Increasingly fraught debates about sex, consent, feminism, justice, law, and gender relations have taken centre stage in academic, journalistic and social media circles in recent years. This has resulted in myriad new theories, debates and mediated movements including #MeToo and #TimesUp. In this book, Tina Sikka explores many of the contradictions and tensions that make up these debates and movements. She looks at those that draw together contemporary understandings of justice, violence, consent, pleasure and desire.
