Women Up Series: FEPS-FJJ Transatlantic Dialogue on “The #MeToo Effect: How did feminist movements on both sides of the Atlantic react and what are the progressive solutions?”

14 March 2018

6:30 pm (local time)

Partner organisation: Fondation Jean-Jaurès

With the support of PES Women

2017 will be remembered as the year of #MeToo, a watershed moment when women came together to support each other in breaking their silence about sexual harassment and assault. This unprecedented wave of brave women who dared to publicly share their most painful experiences and voice that of voiceless women did not stop in Hollywood or in the US. The phenomenon has widely affected public, cultural and political spheres in Europe. This unprecedented movement offers a great opportunity to explore how different countries in the US and in Europe have reacted in order to offer progressive answers.
