The #MeToo Moment: What’s Next?

As the sexual misconduct scandals continue to unfold, our gender team is providing updates and analysis on the coverage and conversation in a new newsletter. Sign up here to receive future installments and tell us what you think at

Shortly after I became gender editor of The New York Times two months ago, the equally-new editor of the website Jezebel, Koa Beck, and I began a series of conversations on WNYC’s The Takeaway. Earlier this week, we recorded a segment about our hopes and worries for the #MeToo Moment in 2018.

Would we see a kind of Mike Pence-ification of working relationships, where men would quite literally wall themselves off from women for fear of crossing a line that seemed to be in motion?

#MeToo: A movement or a moment?

After the #MeToo hashtag blew up on social media in October, it opened the floodgates on a taboo topic and provided a platform for hundreds of thousands of people to share their experiences of sexual harassment and assault.

The hashtag was born from the slew of sexual misconduct accusations leveled first at Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein and then a number of other powerful men.

#MeToo was not without its problems, particularly for women of color. But there can be strength in numbers, and the sheer volume of voices around #MeToo created, even briefly, a movement against what many believe is a misogynistic culture that enables sexual misconduct to go unchecked.

Is Time's Up the Next Step in the Me Too Movement?

"If you are someone who is more marginalized, it’s your right to expect other women who claim to be invested in this cause to help you, too."

Which is why it’s such a joy to see Hollywood power players like Reese Witherspoon, America Ferrera, and Shonda Rhimes have formed Time’s Up. The organization attempts to use their position to help others. Time’s Up is providing a fund run by the National Women's Law Center that will help cover legal expenses for all women standing up to sexual harassment. Thus far, they’ve raised more than $15 million. They’ve also pledged solidarity with the The National Farmworker Women’s Alliance, which shows a kind of class solidarity that we can only hope extends beyond Hollywood.

Black and Latino custodial workers @ the Capitol Bldg said it was degrading to clean up the debris left by white supremacist who violently stormed the Capitol Bldg. They even had to clean up smeared feces. One staffer said they were used to cleaning up after white supremacist (referring to racist Congressional members). Those who were there that day feared for their life b/c they weren't given any protection.
Mother Jones posted a list of "law makers" nationwide who promoted/assisted in the insurrection on our government. ALL should be ousted, stripped of pensions, charged with sedition and felony murder.
If black folks are present at a crime, whether they participated or not, they're charged with as many violations as white folks can conjure up. Felony murder is top of their list. Why not for white domestic terrorist?
25,000 National Guardsmen are set up to protect for Biden/Harris inauguration! Authorities are AGAIN saying that white domestic terrorist are the largest threat in American and to the democratic process.
NOT Black Lives Matter protestors, NOT even foreign terrorist, but American grown white men who are angry about all the white privilege they have.
Twitter is now locking accounts for unusual activity when there is no unusual activity. Apparently if you post to much to soon, it triggers their spider hairs. Never mind that it's (or was) a platform to post information and opinions, now it's just a flat bed from the ghost-of-trump-past. Jack Dorsey/Twitter should be charged with giving trump the media to incite a resurrection against the United States government.
