Reflecting on #MeToo

Listen 49:29

Guests: Stephanie Coontz, Dahlia Lithwick

It has been widely acknowledged that the outrage and activism that has accompanied the #MeToo movement is long overdue. Holding men in power to account for sexual assault and harassment, and giving voice to their victims could be a watershed moment in the effort to achieve gender equality. But, given the varying degrees of sexual misconduct, serious concerns have arisen about how, and if, we can differentiate such behaviors.  Also, how should the legal system respond and how do we actually create lasting cultural change?  We’ll tackle these complicated questions with Evergreen State College professor STEPHANIE COONTZ and DAHLIA LITHWICK who writes about the courts and the law for Slate.
