What's the Consensus On Consent?

A recent paper from the Columbia Journal of Gender and Law on the nonconsensual removal of condoms — called stealthing — has pushed discussions on consent further into the national conversation. Saying yes or no to a sexual advance should be straightforward. How do we clarify the rules on sexual consent? Our guests are Alexandra Brodsky, a fellow at the National Women's Law Center, Kristen Houser, chief public affairs officer at the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, Jackson Katz, co-founder of Mentors in Violence Prevention and Shelby Chestnut, director of community organizing and public advocacy at the New York City Anti-Violence Project.
