Join Gallatin faculty, students, and alumni for a discussion of #MeToo, its consequences, and the complexities of organizing for social change in which sexuality, gender, race, class, and access to political and economic power matter. Josy Jablons(BA ’17), Annie Felix (BA ’19), and Gallatin faculty members Sharon Friedman,Rosanne KennedyRitty Lukose, and Sara Murphy will speak; George Shulmanwill moderate.

The #MeToo Movement was begun by African American civil rights activist Tarana Burke in 2006, in the name of women who had survived violence, with a focus on low-income women of color. The Movement gained momentum when movie producer Harvey Weinstein was accused of sexual assault by women in Hollywood. Since then women from many industries and positions in the workplace, have come forward to tell their stories of sexual harassment, intimidation, and assault. Others have elided traditional boundaries between the private and public spheres and have told their stories of sexual harassment. In response, powerful and influential men have resigned, been fired, withdrawn from public life. Some have suffered no consequences at all.

All who attend are asked to respect the privacy and confidentiality of those who share.
