The Me Too Era: How We Got Here, and What's Next

Pepper Schwartz, University of Washington

The Me Too movement has brought a long-needed course correction to sexual harassment, sexual intimidation, and workplace sexual abuse.  This lecture goes over the chronology of events to understand why this has happened right now and then examines policy dilemmas of competing values about due process, victim protection, offender punishments, and differing approaches within and outside of feminism.

Pepper Schwartz is a Professor of Sociology at the University of Washington in Seattle. After achieving a BA and MA at Washington University in St. Louis, Schwartz went on to receive her PhD in Sociology at Yale University in 1974.

The event is cosponsored with the Department of Sociology.
