IWD 2023: Did the #MeToo Movement Bring Actual Change?
Cross-chamber movie screening of "She Said"
In 2017, the New York Times journalists Megan Twohey and Jodi Kantor published a report that exposes sexual abuse allegations against powerful Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. The shocking story served as a launching pad for the #MeToo movement, shattering decades of silence around the subject of sexual assault and harassment.
To mark the International Women's Day 2023, we joined the initiative of the SwedCham's Women4Women Committee and attended to the screening of the movie She Said at The Projector. After the screening, we had a 30 min open mic discussion on what we have learnt since the start of the #MeToo movement and where we are today, in 2023. The discussion was moderated by policy expert Neha Thakkar.
There was opportunities for networking both before and after the film/discussion.
