Sara Farris on Race and the #MeToo Movement

Published 2018

#MeToo has been such a big catalyst for what looks every day more like the emergence of a new feminist movement, because it speaks to women across the class, race, and sexuality divides. The movement points to the fact that sexual harassment and violence in many ways functions as a “great equalizer” among women because the overwhelming majority of us have experienced it in some form, regardless of our backgrounds.Sara Farris, Visitor in the School of Social Science, in “#MeToo Shows Sexism is Not Men of Color’s Prerogative,” Al Jazeera, February 10, 2018, bit.ly/2HhtcNe
