The #MeToo movement has been a topic for lively conversation over the past several months. Every week it seems another celebrity or politician is pressured to resign after sexual assault and harassment allegations surface. Several students here at UC wanted to bring some of these discussions into the open for International Women’s Day on 8 March.

They have organised a panel of staff, student, and broader community representatives to lead a discussion about the #MeToo movement and other issues relating to sexual violence and harassment. The focus is on how the movement relates to our own experiences and what we can all do to bring about change within our communities.
