Abstract: »Harris's essay (Chapter 17) is also highly relevant to discussions of rape, since it critiques notions that women's consent was unimportant to men in ancient Greece. As Harris demonstrates, evidence from Athenian literature reveals that men did in fact pay attention to when women said "yes" and "no".« (Source: Mark Masterson, Nancy Sorkin Rabinowitz and James Robson, with assistance from Lloyd Llewellyn-Jones. »Introduction.« Sex in Antiquity: Exploring Gender and Sexuality in the Ancient World.
