“MeToo: Intersectionality, Hashtag Activism & Our Lives” Exhibit & Reception
Exhibit Feb 22 - March 2, Berry West
Reception, Feb 25, 4:30-6:30, Berry West
The exhibit features work drawn from F'18 WGSS20.02 group projects. Students designed and hosted four events on campus: “Global Iterations of #MeToo,” “#MeToo: Assessing the Impact,” “Gender Letter to Campus,” and “MeToo in Our Community: Gender-Based Violence on Campus.” Displays include artwork and poetry by Dartmouth student survivors, images and information about #MeToo around the world, visitors’ feedback from activity stations about gender at Dartmouth, and alumnae survivors’ stories. Additionally, a projects blog (that also includes outcomes from student teaching later in the term) will be available to explore. At the reception, students will talk briefly about their work, and we’ll host an open discussion.
Image: Tarana Burke, black civil rights activist from The Bronx, New York who founded the Me Too movement. In 2006, Burke began using the phrase "Me Too" to raise awareness of the pervasiveness of sexual abuse and assault in society, and the phrase developed into a broader movement, following the 2017 use of #MeToo as a hashtag following the Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse allegations.
