#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.

The panel, moderated by Charnell Covert of the group Force: Upsetting Rape Culture, includes writer and artist Nia Hampton, journalist Lisa Snowden-McCray (a Baltimore Fishbowl contributor), performance artist and teacher Ebony Evans and activist and Not Without Black Women director Brittany T. Oliver (who was profiled in our series #MeToo in Baltimore).

The event, hosted by Hollaback! Baltimore and Not Without Black Women, kicks off with pizza, a cocktail reception and music from Outcalls, Micah E. Wood and New Orleans duo Renshaw Davies.

Be sure to stop in for the concert and stick around for what should be an incredibly powerful and important discussion about creating a better future for women and holding abusers accountable.

6 p.m., panel at 7:30 p.m., The Windup Space, 12 W. North Ave., free, donations encouraged.
