Au-delà du consentement: quelle politique pour plus de justice sexuelle? Joseph J. Screw Consent: A Better Politics of Sexual Justice, Oakland, University of California Press, 2019, 280 pages

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


This book review engages with Joseph Fischel’s book, Screw Consent: A Better Politics of Sexual Justice. Fischel’s book questions the preeminence of the discourse of consent as a central feature of contemporary debates on sexual issues. It also offers an alternative conceptual toolbox to better think and promote sexual justice with notions like sexual autonomy, equal access, and democratic hedonism. If the book engages mostly with the context of education campaigns against sexual violence in US colleges and sex regulations in US law, my review highlights its contribution to the field of political and feminist theory and the relevance of its analysis for broader contemporary debates on sexual justice and the #metoo movement.
