0

IAS faculty member Kari Lerum is the lead author of an article published in the journal Sex Roles. The article, entitled “Sexual agency is not a problem of neoliberalism: Feminism, sexual justice, & the carceral turn,”is part of the journal’s Feminist Forum section, where leading researchers are invited to comment on new theoretical models. In this article, Lerum and her co-author examine the promises and limitations of Laina Y. Bay-Cheng's model of the Agency Line in terms of its contribution to interdisciplinary feminist discussions of young women's sexuality in the U.S.; after laying out their critique they call on progressive feminists to think through sexual agency more carefully by resisting carceral feminist cooptation and supporting sexual justice principles.
