DESCRIPTION

First, it was Hollywood. Before long, the #MeToo movement has spread to other aspects of modern life, from the corporate world to literary publishing, to the changing face of politics. But there remains a glass ceiling in terms of pay, recognition and representation. This panel will zoom in on the impact of the movement, and what society needs to do next.
