#MeToo Presentation

#MeToo Presentation

In 2006, Tarana Burke founded the me too. movement to help survivors of sexual violence, particularly young women of color from low-income communities find the language to talk about their experiences, build systems of support, start conversations, and put themselves on pathways of healing. October 2017 saw #MeToo grow into an international movement, after going viral on social media as a hashtag used to break the silence that empowers perpetrators and to illustrate the prevalence of sexual assault, harassment, and gender-based violence around the world. In this presentation, Jasleen hopes to explore the questions “What would it take for the #metoo movement to happen in the Sikh community? What could our #metoo movement look like? And what are the unique challenges our community must overcome in order to get there?"
