520    "The #MeToo movement has focused public attention on the 
       issue of sexual consent. People of all genders, from all 
       walks of life, have stepped forward to tell their stories 
       of sexual harassment and violation. In a predictable 
       backlash, others have taken to mass media to inquire 
       plaintively if "flirting" is now forbidden. This volume in
       the MIT Press Essential Knowledge series offers a nuanced 
       introduction to sexual consent by a writer who is both a 
       scholar and an activist on this issue.  It has become 
       clear from discussions of the recent high-profile cases of
       Harvey Weinstein, Bill Cosby, and others that there is no 
       clear agreement over what constitutes consent or non-
       consent and how they are expressed and perceived in sexual
       situations. This book presents key strands of feminist 
       thought on the subject of sexual consent from across 
       academic and activist communities and covers the history 
       of research on consent in such fields as psychology and 
       feminist legal studies. It discusses how sexual consent is
       negotiated in practice, from "No means no" to "Yes means 
       yes," and describes what factors might limit individual 
       agency in such negotiations. It examines how popular 
       culture, including pornography, romance fiction, and sex 
       advice manuals, shapes our ideas of consent; explores the 
       communities at the forefront of consent activism; and 
       considers what meaningful social change in this area might
       look like. Going beyond the conventional cisgender, 
       heterosexual norm, the book lists additional resources for
       those seeking to improve their practice of consent, 
       survivors of sexual violence, and readers who want to 
       understand contemporary debates on this issue in more
