Two women who testified against disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein have thrown their support behind a new bill that seeks to define “consent” and clarify lawful sexual conduct in New York state.

New York Assembly Member Rebecca Seawright announced bill A6540 on Monday, which defines consent as a “freely given, knowledgeable and informed agreement” obtained without the use of “malice such as forcible compulsion, duress, coercion deception, fraud, concealment or artifice.”
