Graphic Witness: The #MeToo Movement
In October 2017, the conversation about sexual violence changed. The scale of people sharing "MeToo” on social media brought a new level of visibility to the perennial problem of sexual harassment, assault, and rape in women’s lives. This talk will explore the intersectional feminist histories underlying the “MeToo” movement and pose questions about the testimonial trajectories (actual and potential) of women’s accounts of harm in a public sphere primed to doubt and discredit them.
