It’s been four months since revelations about the behaviour of the Hollywood producer, Harvey Weinstein, first started to emerge. In that period, there have been a slew of other allegations concerning public figures, and a wide-ranging conversation has begun too about sex and consent.

One woman’s account of a date with the comedian Aziz Ansari prompted a huge amount of discussion, as did Nigella Lawson’s comment that, in rejecting an overture, women have always been told “we mustn’t make a man feel bad about anything”.
