Episode 7: Yes, #metoo, but where do we go from here?
What do we do with all of the energy and information released by the #metoo movement? What is it we need to learn from our histories—individual and collective, and how do we move into a new relationship with the reality of sexual harassment, advantage-taking, abuse, and violence?
Part 1: Interview with Pastor MarySue Brookshire, United Church of Christ, Bay Park, California, about her experience as someone who has experienced sexual violence and who leads a religious community where others have experienced sexual violence.
Part 2: Sharon Block (History, University of California, Irvine) on sexual violence in early American history; Danielle McGuire (History, Wayne State University) on how African-American women in the civil rights movement were among the first to surface sexual violence as a political issue; Daphne Brooks (Afro-American Studies, Yale) on what African-American women performers can teach us through art and music about finding our way to a new place of perspective and power.
Part 3: Conversation.
