The caption reads: “New York Governor Andrew Cuomo greets House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi at an event at New York University (NYU) where Cuomo signed into law a new affirmative sexual consent policy to combat campus sexual violence on July 7, 2015 in New York City. Joined by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, local politicians, survivors of abuse and area activists, the bill includes a ‘yes means yes’ definition of consent requiring a clear and affirmative agreement between sexual partners.”
