Consent is a concept at the center of criminal law and sexual assault. So, why is it so difficult to accurately define? On this episode of Reasonably Speaking, two experts on the topic, Aya Gruber (Colorado Law) and Jennifer Long (Aequitas), discuss and debate the potential for success and failure of implementing an “affirmative consent” requirement, how we now understand that there is no expected behavior during or after a sexual assault, and how important is to treat every case individually.
