January 4th & 11th: The #Metoo Movement and What’s Next
Dr. Ashwini Tambe is an Associate Professor of Women’s Studies at University of Maryland-College Park. She has recently been writing about the #metoo movement. We discussed the precursors to this public outcry about sexual harassment, abuse, and violence; what it means to survivors/victims to be living through this moment; and how we should understand the circle of complicity that has emboldened this behavior. We also reflected on what it means to have a US president in office with accusations of sexual harassment and assault and about the crowdsourced survey created by Dr. Karen Kelsky regarding sexual harassment in academia.
