12 Senior Fellows on #MeToo's International Impact

February 02, 2018

In the past several months, the #MeToo Movement has gained momentum across American industries and communities and has spread to many other countries. Many have hailed #MeToo as a major step forward in women’s rights and gender rights, while others have criticized elitist and exclusionary aspects of the movement.

We asked Fellows and Senior Fellows to share reflections on #MeToo in their countries -- Belgium, Bulgaria, Denmark, France, Greece, the Netherlands, Poland, Turkey, Ukraine and United States. We're excited to share their important reflections with you today. 

We look forward to continuing this important conversation, and we share deep thanks with the 10 Fellows and Senior Fellows for sharing their perspectives:
