Long-time frustration over the ubiquity of workplace sexual harassment and everyday sexual assault erupted in wave of activism beginning in late 2017, more than a decade after activist Tarana Burke began using the Me Too tagline. Activists called attention to gender inequities in the entertainment industry, media, education, corporations, sports, medicine, courts, government, and religion while refusing to be cast as passive victims. Drawing upon long-standing bodies of research that confirm the need for action now, three Gender Studies faculty will demonstrate their classroom techniques for deconstructing and challenging deeply entrenched patriarchal attitudes, behaviors, and policies.
