“Yes Means Yes”: All Aboard the Virtual Book Tour

By Christine |

It’s about time we wrote about the new book “Yes Means Yes: Visions of Female Sexual Power & A World Without Rape.”

Featuring more than two dozen essays, “Yes Means Yes” breaks down attitudes toward rape and female sexuality while providing smart media analysis and commentary on current social and political issues, including funding for sex education, sexual violence against immigrant women, and the dangerous notion of “gray rape.”

“Yes Means Yes” is also a blog, written by the book’s contributors. Those contributors are appearing at readings around the country (check upcoming events for the latest schedule) AND they’re taking part in a virtual book tour that starts today.

Below is the lineup for the full tour. Note that Our Bodies Our Blog is scheduled to take part this Thursday, Feb. 5. We’ll hear from Brad Perry, sexual violence prevention coordinator at the Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Action Alliance, and Lisa Jervis, founding editor and publisher of Bitch magazine (and writer and media advocate extraordinaire).

    Some of the crew stayed on board for the return trip, while others were required to move the GT500 and any of the
    support vehicles on each end of each leg, then get back in line and start
    the process over. But right now, every indication is
    that the Disney monorail tragedy was not the result of any such mechanical problem, but rather was human error.
    If you have been injured in a Michigan car accident,
    truck accident, or motorcycle accident you may be available for either coordinated medical coverage or uncoordinated (primary)
    medical coverage depending on what type of no-fault auto policy you selected.

    Getting the proper protection: Intellectual property lawyers deal with all the current variations of IP protection to ensure that
    the idea, creations, not to mention work of clients own watertight protection. You will be glad to know
    that you have recourse; this is the United States, where everyone has rights.

  3. If the case goes to court, the parties surrender control
    to a judge, and the cost will be much higher. These
    attorneys know recovery is often lifelong and exceedingly complex.

    Goose, and everyone on the team was wondering
    when Maverick would re-engage.
