"As a culture we aren't very good at having nuanced, complicated discussions," Robyn Doolittle writes in the introduction to Had It Coming. "The public space is not a safe venue to talk about controversial subjects. Social media has seen to that . . . I've come to embrace the complexities and messiness that comes with those tough conversations."

Doolittle brings a personal voice to what has been a turning point for most women: the #MeToo movement and its aftermath. The world is now increasingly aware of the pervasiveness of rape culture in which powerful men got away with sexual assault and harassment for years, but Doolittle looks beyond specific cases to the big picture. The issue of consent figures largely: not only is the public confused about what it means, but an astounding number of legal authorities are too.

Doolittle will be in conversation with Daniel Dale, a reporter in CNN's Washington Bureau where he fact-checks political claims. Prior to joining CNN in 2019, Dale spent over a decade at the Toronto Star, including as Washington Bureau Chief, where he was the first journalist to fact-check every false statement from President Donald Trump.
