After #metoo: Where Next
It is a conference and workshop exploring academic and practitioner responses to the #metoo campaign, and we welcome presenters and attendees from across disciplines as well as from the social sector. It is open to PhD students, Masters students and practitioners and will be held on 23rd July 2018.
The #metoo campaign has facilitated the emergence of a renewed public narrative around violence against women and girls (VAWG), which has led to the widespread public disclosure of women’s experiences of a sexual harassment and abuse. Will this make any tangible or lasting difference to women and girls’ experience of violence (in all its forms)? Does public discourse reflect the experiences of women who are more marginalised or less privileged, particularly given that the campaign’s founder, Tarana Burke, has largely been unacknowledged and obscured in this debate?
