“Yes Means Yes,” “We Believe You,” “It’s Never Her Fault”—these are the slogans of the next sexual revolution. It’s playing out now in colleges across the country and has the potential not only to redefine the meanings of consent, assault, and rape, but to shape how we think about gender and power. Grigoriadis, a National Magazine Award winner and contributing editor at The New York Times Magazine, embedded on large and small campuses to report the experiences of a wide range of students, from those who have survived sexual assault to those who have been accused of it. She also talked to activists, parents, and school administrators, and her evenhanded presentation illuminates much about why this debate is under way and where it may take us.
