"Women, Sexuality, and the Political Power of Pleasure. "Susie Jolly, Andrea Cornwall and Kate Hawkins (eds.). Zed Books. June 2013. --- This collection explores the ways in which positive, pleasure-focused approaches to sexuality can empower women, with examples of activism, advocacy and programming which use pleasure as a starting point. Covering topics such as gender and development, disability and sex, and human rights and relationships, Women, Sexuality, and the Political Power of Pleasure is a fresh and fascinating engagement with sex, sexuality, and politics, writes Megan O’Branski.
