Gonzaga Presidential Speaker Series April 20

New York social justice activist Tarana Burke, originator of the 'MeToo' movement, and journalist Ronan Farrow, who helped break the story exposing multiple accusations of assault and harassment by Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, will share their perspectives on their work and the movement as features of the GU's seventh Presidential Speaker Series. 'The Power of Social Discourse and the Complexity of the #MeToo Movement', is the topic of this event, to be held Friday, April 20, 7pm at GU's McCarthey Athletic Center.

The wave of reported incidents of sexual assault and misconduct that followed the Harvey Weinstein expose - involving entertainment personalities, politicians, educators, and others - has brought renewed attention and awareness to the widespread nature of this behavior. The movement has demonstrated that sexual assault and harassment persist despite the life-changing effect that sexual assault and harassment have on individuals, and despite systematic efforts to raise awareness, educate and alter behavior across many environments.

Burke is among those recognized as Time magazine's 2017 Person of the Year: The Silence Breakers, and Farrow, who received global recognition for his culture-shifting series of articles on Harvey Weinstein published in The New Yorker.
This event is open to the public. Tickets available at all Ticketswest outlets, ticketswest.com, and at the McCarthey Athletic Center. Cost is $14 for adults, $10 for seniors, students and educators.
