Desire and power in the wake of #MeToo

Posted By Politybooks

Harvey Weinstein has been convicted of sexual assault and rape and sentenced to 23 years in prison: in the case that fuelled the #MeToo movement, justice has now been done. 

But sexual harassment runs deep in our culture and touches on the most fundamental issues of power and desire. Who has the power to pursue their desires, who is vulnerable and what gets hushed up? How can the plurality of sexuality and desire be expressed without sacrificing their intricacies?

The Weinstein case opened up a necessary conversation about sexuality and power that can no longer be silenced.

When I Say Yes by Carolin Emcke is now available from Polity.
