Summary

Summary

Date rape emerged as a controversial issue on college campuses in the late 1980s after a widely publicized study revealed that large numbers of college women had been coerced, either through physical force or psychlogical pressure, into having sex against their will. Questions of consent--does no really mean no?--and whether the definition of rape should be broadened to include incidents where no force is used are debated and discussed in this anthology.
