I mentioned this briefly before but I have a piece in the new book Yes Means Yes: Visions of Female Sexual Power and a World Without Rape.
The book has some really interesting pieces in it, and I promise I’m not just saying this because I’m in it.
If you want to hear more from the contributors, there will a livechat this afternoon at 3pm Eastern over at Feministing with the two editors and three contributors (me included!).
If you’re in DC, you should come to our reading on Thursday February 5th at Bus Boys and Poets (on U st). After party at Chi-Cha lounge! I’ll be there, along with LaToya Peterson, Jessica Valenti, Jaclyn Friedman and other contributors.
Also, today’s livechat kicks off the official Yes Means Yes Blog tour, with stops all over the blogosphere. I’ll be hosting the second to last stop here at Radical Doula, with an interview with contributor Hazel/Cedar Troost about her article on consensual touch. Should be interesting!
