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

Based on Penny's celebrated, Ellie-nominated series at Longreads, Consent 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, existing social and political paradigms breed sexual inequality and injustice. As recent global movements demonstrate, it is time for these paradigms to be upended.

Nuanced, accessible and lyrical, Penny 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.
