Presentation of ongoing research at the G19 Swedish Conference for Gender Research 7-9th of October 2019 

The #metoo activism has made personal, often silenced experiences of sexual harassment and abuse political through quantification and public recognition. The movement has developed globally in closed groups, outside established political movements, and has been publicly discussed in newspapers’ leading articles, in talk shows, and in seminars. Trade unions, political parties and authorities have responded with legislative proposals and investigations.

This panel gathers ongoing #metoo research focusing on: the discourses surrounding #metoo, the collaborative efforts within the movement, as well as on the suggested solutions.
