Tuesday March 20
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
This panel seeks to engage the #MeToo conversation by exploring the power dynamics at the root of sexual harassment and assault, by centering the perspectives of individuals and groups who have been agitating for change, and by articulating the need for intersectional feminist theorizing and interventions. Panelists will discuss what it will take to achieve accountability and lasting reform in the face of entrenched socio-economic inequalities, and will situate the #MeToo campaign in the context of the global struggle for gender rights, highlighting the need for transnational solidarities.
