The Heat: Culture of sexual harassment

The Heat

Over the last few months, there’s been a reckoning in the United States involving sexual harassment in the workplace.

A  number of powerful men including Hollywood actors, executives, broadcast newsmen and U.S. politicians were fired or forced to step down because of allegations of sexual misconduct.

And women voiced their solidarity through social media with the hashtag #metoo. With sexual harassment dominating the headlines, is this a new chapter for gender equality in the workplace in the U.S. and around the world?

To discuss all of this:

  • Shruti Kapoor,  gender equality activist and founder of Sayfty
  • Stella Amabilis, fellow, leadership and advocacy for Women in Africa, Georgetown University
  • Matthew Gutmann, professor of Anthropology and Director of the Brown International Advanced Research Institutes, Brown University
  • Caren Goldberg, associate professor of Management at Bowie State University
