‘The Routledge Handbook of the Politics of the #MeToo Movement’ published!

The #MeToo movement travelled the globe via social media in 2017, and has impacted societies all over, although unevenly across countries. With contributions from gender experts spanning a wide range of disciplines including political science, history, sociology, law, literature, and philosophy, this ground-breaking book will have contemporary relevance for scholars, feminists, gender researchers, and policymakers across the globe. The book includes authors such as Angela Davis, Purna Sen, Marai Larasi, and Robert O'Mochain with a foreword by Cynthia Enloe.

To celebrate the launch of the handbook, the GEST podcast is dedicated to the #MeToo movement for the next few weeks. Our hosts, Thomas and Giti, will be interviewing a few of our dear GEST alumni, discussing the #MeToo movement in their societies. The most recent podcast was with Kinita Shenoy from Sri Lanka, who has worked with the UN, the European Climate Foundation, and the World Bank Group among other things. You can listen to the podcast with Kinita and others on the GEST podcast website.
