Social activist Tarana Burke founded the me too. movement in 2006 to help survivors of sexual violence understand they aren’t alone and to help them find pathways to healing. The phrase spread virally in October 2017 as a hashtag used on social media to help demonstrate the prevalence of sexual assault and harassment, especially in the workplace. #MeToo has now been posted online millions of times, accompanied by personal stories of sexual harassment or assault.
During the forum, panelists will discuss the social dialogue triggered by the #MeToo movement and the changes it is expected to trigger in the workplace and in politics moving forward.
