Just seven months ago, New York Times reporter Megan Twohey published an investigative report about sexual assault and harassment allegations against film producer Harvey Weinstein,laying the groundwork for the #MeToo movement. She'll join two other journalists to reflect on the movement she started at a Contemporary Thought Speaker Series panel on #MeToo this Thursday, May 10.
In addition to Pulitzer-winner and Evanston native Twohey, the panel also includes Teen Vogue columnist Lauren Duca, who has gone viral multiple times in the past year-and-a-half for her commentary on President Donald Trump and gender issues, and Erika Allen, an editor at culture site The Outline and the former editor of sexuality site Slutever (now a Vice series). Journalism associate professor Mei-Ling Hopgood, also a practicing freelance journalist who writes about identity, will moderate.
“This exemplary group of female journalists are leading the charge in the newsroom to tackle the most pressing and complex of questions that have emerged in this unique #MeToo moment,” said CTSS vice president Amanda Gordon in a press release. “We are really excited to bring such a dynamic group of individuals to Northwestern.”
The event takes place in Harris 107 at 7 p.m. It will be first-come, first-seated.
