The topic of women’s consent is a controversial one that has been given little attention. Robert Hahn – President of Men Stopping Violence Against Women states that
I propose that the meaning of YES is qualitatively different for men and women: When uttered by a woman it need not signify permission. The underlying difference is that as a consequence of the implicit cultural traditions and the widespread and generally unsanctioned violence of men against women, a woman’s speech may not be free.
To say YES under threat is not to freely give permission.
This does not necessarily mean that all women consent under the threat of male violence and abuse – but it would be the rare or naïve woman who did not appreciate that she is on dangerous ground and the possibility of threat is always there!
Given the background of the socialised violence and abuse against women across the media, (including porn), this obvious threat should be taken into account and not be held against women in a society, where man’s word is loaded with more veracity and authority, and therefore worth more than a woman’s, regardless of place or context.
To take the man’s word is to give more credence to his version than hers and to ignore the sanctioned privilege and power that men have over women.
PERMISSION GIVEN UNDER DURESS IS NOT RELIABLE!
