The #MeToo movement has revealed sexual abuse in every sphere of society, including the church. But all too often, churches have been complicit in protecting abusers, reinforcing patriarchal power dynamics, and creating cultures of secrecy, shame, and silence. Disclosing candid stories of abuse, pastor and survivor Ruth Everhart offers God's hope to survivors while shining a light on the prevalence of sexual misconduct within faith communities.

The first history--incisive, witty, fascinating--of the fight against sexual harassment, from the author of the New York Times bestseller Sisters in Law Linda Hirshman, acclaimed historian of social movements, delivers the sweeping story of the struggle leading up to #MeToo and beyond: from the first tales of workplace harassment percolating to the surface in the 1970s, to the Clinton/Lewinsky scandal--when liberal women largely forgave Clinton, giving men a free pass for two decades. Many liberals even resisted the movement to end rape on campus. And yet, legal, political, and cultural efforts, often spearheaded by women of color, were quietly paving the way for the takedown of abusers and harassers. Reckoning delivers the stirring tale of a movement catching fire as pioneering women in the media exposed the Harvey Weinsteins of the world, women flooded the political landscape, and the walls of male privilege finally began to crack. This is revelatory, essential social history.

Oprah Winfrey said it best in her recent Golden Globes speech: "Speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have... And for too long, women have not been heard or believed." Welcome to the #MeToo Movement! This book is part of this historic uprising. This day of reckoning has motivated hundreds of women around the globe from all walks of life to boldly find their voices and say "No More" to years of endured sexual abuse and harassment. This movement (and book) transcends any culture, geography, race, religion or politics. For far too long many men have coerced women (and some men) into remaining quiet about their bad behavior that is now privately and publicly no longer acceptable #TimesUp From Matt Lauer to Bill Cosby to Harvey Weinstein, daily, more abusive perpetrators are falling thanks to the strong and unified voices of women everywhere. This book takes a unique approach by revealing powerful stories from #MeToo survivors who have endured many difficulties and now feel compelled to share their truth. The book's moving accounts point to the abuse of power and the real impact it has had on its victims and their families. This book is timely now because the power is shifting in America (and beyond) with women like #MeToo founder Tarana Burke leading the way. While we will never know the names of many victims, every day, more and more women are becoming empowered to tell their stories. The women profiled in this book bravely stand up to inspire other women to do the same. For those who want to be motivated and encouraged through real-life stories, this is the book for you. "The new day is on the horizon," said Oprah forcefully! Reading this book is certain to inspire MORE women to find their voice and take action to ensure that perpetrators are held responsible for their actions and that future generations of girls won't have to relive such dark experiences.

Misogyny and Media in the Age of Trump argues that misogyny has increased in the United States under President Trump and that although women’s experiences under misogyny are by no means universal, patriarchal social and institutional systems facilitate gender-based hostility. Systemic misogyny and power inequities are at the root of male-on-female bullying, the bullying and harassment of non-hegemonic males and other minorities as well as sexual harassment, rape, and even murder. Given the prevalence of misogyny, and its deep rootedness in religion, it is argued that the social contract needs to be rewritten in order to have a just, gender- and race-equitable society. Misogyny creates a clash of cultures between men and women, hegemonic and non-hegemonic males, feminists and INCELS, the powerful and the oppressed, natives and marginalized minorities, the conservative and the liberal/progressive. This book explores misogyny across media ranging from political and editorial cartoons to news, sport, film, television, social media (especially Twitter), and journalistic organizations that address gender inequities. The authors argue that the current era of conservative populism ushered in by President Donald Trump and the Republicans constitute the social-cultural and political environment that have given rise to the #MeToo Movement and Fourth Wave Feminism.

"In the midst of unprecedented attention to gender based violence (GBV) globally, prompted in part by the #MeToo movement, this book provides a new analysis of how higher education cultures can be transformed. It offers reflections from faculty, staff and students about how change has happened and could happen on their campuses in ways that go beyond implementation of programmes and policies. Building on what is already known from decades of scholarship and practice in the US, and more recent attention elsewhere, this book provides an inter-disciplinary, international overview of attempts to transform higher education cultures in order to eradicate GBV.. Change happens because people act, usually with others. At the heart of transformative efforts lie collaborations between faculty, staff, students, activists and community organisations. The contributors to the book reflect on what makes for constructive, effective collaborations and how to avoid the common mistakes in working with others to end GBV. They consider what has worked to challenge the reluctance-or outright hostility-they have encountered in their work against GBV and how their collaborations have succeeded in transforming the ways we think about GV and what we do about it.Chapters focus on experiences in Canada, the US, England, Scotland, France and India to examine different approaches to tackling GBV in higher education. They reveal the cultural variations in which GBV occurs as well as the similarities across cultures-that GBV Is committed overwhelmingly by men against women and reflects a determination to assert masculine power. Together, they demonstrate that, to make higher education a safe environment for all, nothing short of a transformation is required"--

It started with an article and grew into a movement. #MeToo was born in the wake of a Pulitzer-prize winning New York Times investigative report on producer Harvey Weinstein's habitual sexual harassment of young women. The hashtag empowered women around the world to share their stories of sexual assault and abuse. Corporations responded by firing dozens of accused CEOs, media moguls, and movie stars, and politicians responded by sponsoring legislation against sexual harassment. This collection of articles tracks the movement from its start. It looks at the international response and inevitable criticism, as well as the future of the movement.
