Consent: A Revolution in Desire

(2020)
A non fiction book by

 
 
An urgent, hopeful, and unapologetic new book about sexual consent, sexual politics, democracy, and the power of desire, from award-winning writer Laurie Penny.

Based on Penny's celebrated, Ellie-nominated series at Longreads, Sexual Insurrection is a hand grenade of a book that demands a shake-up in gender and sexual relations.

From mental health to abortion, issues of race to the rise of the far right, Penny shows that existing social and political paradigms breed from sexual inequality and injustice. As recent global movements demonstrate, it is time for these paradigms to be upended.

Nuanced, accessible and lyrical, Sexual Insurrection draws on years of journalistic and academic research to argue that a new attitude to consent can change not only sexual politics, but democracy itself.
