AWW22 The Right to Sex - Amia Srinivasan Adelaide Writers' Week

    • Books

Chaired by Clare Wright

Described by The New York Times as “quietly dazzling”, Amia Srinivasan’s The Right to Sex is a landmark examination of the politics and ethics of sex. “A truly inclusionary politics,” Amia writes, “is an uncomfortable, unsafe politics.” Moving beyond questions of consent, and the notion of wanted or unwanted sex, this formidable collection re-centres the second-wave feminist idea of the personal as political in thrilling new ways, asking us to interrogate what it is that shapes our expectations and desires.
