The #MeToo Movement and Minority Voices: A Conversation with Shaheen Pasha and Gina Beavers

At a time of national reckoning and accountability around sexual harassment, what challenges and opportunities do women of minority communities experience in speaking out against men both inside and outside their identity groups? What does the #MeToo movement represent for women of color? What are the causes of misogyny in the broader American culture and what are the legal, political, and social shifts required to address the prevalence of sexual harassment in society? Join us to hear Shaheen Pasha (Assistant Professor, Dept. of Journalism, UMass Amherst) and Ms. Gina Beavers (Arts and Culture Editor, The Valley Advocate) speak on this critical issue 

Venue: Friends Meeting House, 43 Center Street, Northampton
