#MeToo stories may not dominate the headlines the way they did in 2017, but misogyny, sexual harassment, sexual assault and abuse no doubt persist despite the national attention brought to these issues a year ago.

Tonight, a group of activists, writers and artists will gather to share stories and discuss the past, present and future of the movement to end misogyny, particularly with the General Assembly gearing up for the next session in 2019.

Per the World Health Organization, 1 in 3 women will experience sexual violence in their lifetime, making tonight’s discussion incredibly relevant regardless of the shifts in media attention.
