Publishers Weekly Announces "Yes Means Yes" as one of its Top 100 of 2009

Today, Publishers Weekly posted its highly anticipated list of Best Books of 2009. Of 50,000 titles, Seal is proud to be recognized in the general non-fiction category for Yes Means Yes: Visions of Female Sexual Power and a World Without Rape, edited by Jaclyn Friedman and Jessica Valenti.

PW states, "Activist writers Friedman and Valenti present an extraordinary, eye-opening essay collection that focuses on the importance of sexual identity and ownership in the struggle against rape in the U.S., as well as a number of related issues, including sexual pleasure, self-esteem and the mixed societal messages that turn 'nice guys' bad."

Congratulations to Seal, the editors, and to all the contributors!
