Ep 47: The Valleys Will Kill You (feat. Tarana Burke)
By Spotify Studios
Tarana Burke, the founder of the #MeToo movement, joins Jemele to discuss the two-year anniversary of the powerful campaign that gave sexual abuse survivors a voice and created an international conversation. She discusses the progress the movement, and how media coverage has undermined the true messaging of #MeToo. She also explains the many misconceptions about sexual violence, how we need to address what consent means for both genders and how black women in particular have struggled to find intra-community support when it comes to the sexual violence they experience.
