About

Overview

Several years before the revelations around sexual harassment and misconduct in Hollywood sparked the #metoo movement, colleges and universities across America were reeling from a series of assaults that challenged the way sexual consent had been taught. The articles collected here detail the evolution of the debate, from individual cases that captured national attention to the implementation of California's Affirmative Consent law. Beyond highlighting the legal and administrative responses to these cases, this book also features stories of the consequences students have faced in their daily lives as they navigate the debate.
