The #MeToo movement has sparked a nationwide conversation on sexual harassment in the workplace and it seems that nearly every day, a new powerful person in Hollywood, the halls of Congress or in corporate America is added to the list of men accused of sexual harassment or assault. The New York Times has played a critical role in uncovering some of the most widely kept secrets, starting with breaking the Harvey Weinstein story. What social forces over time led us here — and what lies ahead for 2018? Will the movement leave a lasting mark or will the backlash against it take over? And what does all of this mean for women journalists? What practical strategies can we use to fight gender inequality in our own newsrooms — and what is our role in continuing to cover gender issues and the #MeToo movement in our institutions?
