Women take to the streets for “Yes means yes”.

Switzerland’s sexual criminal law is to be reformed: this is what a number of associations and organizations are calling for. The principle “Only yes means yes” should be enshrined in the law. So if there is no explicit consent to sex, it should be considered rape.

The federal government and parliament have so far shown little enthusiasm for the radical change. Preference is given to a gentler version of sexual criminal law based on the “No means no” principle: This states that sex against a person’s will will in future be considered rape. And the use or threat of violence is no longer a prerequisite, as it is today.
