The Right to Sex

by Amia Srinivasan

The Right to Sex

Amia Srinivasan

Overview

Sex has different implications across race, class, and gender divides. Despite progress made in earlier feminist movements, existing patriarchal and racist structures still largely determine issues of sex.

Amia Srinivasan is a philosopher and professor of social and political theory at Oxford who questions many of the social interactions at work in the sexual exchange in her book The Right to Sex: Feminism in the Twenty-First Century.

Srinivasan's book is a collection of essays aimed at answering the question 'who has the right to sex?' Through her exploration of the realms of sexual dynamics and relationships, she unravels the unconscious biases individuals face and follow when choosing potential partners and analyzes the ways in which societal pressures affect our views of ourselves and others.

Favorite Quote

"Is it 'as banal as it gets' to observe that what is ugliest about our social realities – racism, classism, ableism, heteronormativity – shapes whom we do and do not desire and love, and who does and does not desire and love us?"
