Ambiguities and dilemmas around #MeToo: #ForHow Long and #WhereTo?

Author(s): Dubravka Zarkov, Kathy Davis

In: European Journal of Women's Studies, Vol 25, No 1, 2018, pp. 3-9

The authors explore some concerns about #MeToo and how feminist have responded to sexual harassment and sexual violence. #MeToo started in the USA a decade ago as activism by Black women who had experienced sexual violence to ‘let other survivors know they are not alone’ and create solidarity with the victims. The #MeToo campaign claims to be doing this now, but the authors query if this is actually what is being accomplished.
