WICA Humanities Series: Pepper Schwartz: #MeToo and the New Sexual Landscape
July 28, 2019 @ 1:30 am - 3:30 am$25
In October 2017, actress Alyssa Milano posted on Twitter, “If you’ve been sexually harassed or assaulted write ‘me too’ as a reply to this tweet.” That came on the heels of stories by The New York Times and New Yorker about allegations of sexual assault by Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.
Twenty-four hours after her tweet, Milano had 500,000 replies. They ignited the #MeToo movement in the United States — a phenomenon that would soon reverberate around the planet in surprising, sometimes profound, often disappointing ways.
Sociologist Pepper Schwartz takes the WICA stage and addresses the question: have things truly changed?
