Part Two - Beyond #MeToo

Resources:

  • Book - Judith Herman “Trauma and Recovery: The Aftermath of Violence – From Domestic Abuse to Political Terror” (book on Amazon)


Terminology:

  • Intersectional Feminism - a decades-old term many feminists use to explain how the feminist movement can be more diverse and inclusive. If feminism is advocating for women's rights and equality between the sexes, intersectional feminism is the understanding of how women's overlapping identities — including race, class, ethnicity, religion and sexual orientation — impact the way they experience oppression and discrimination.

  • Allies - People who recognize the unearned privilege they receive from society's patterns of injustice and take responsibility for changing these patterns.
