The MeToo Movement – recipient of the 2019 Sydney Peace Prize – has changed the way we understand and talk about sexual harassment and violence around the world, in homes, public spaces, and workplaces. 

Tarana Burke began building the movement in 2006 to help survivors of sexual violence, particularly black women and girls, connect to resources for healing, and to build a survivor-led community of advocates against sexual violence. 

The United States Studies Centre was honoured to host Burke In conversation with journalist and presenter Jan Fran, to discuss the founding and future of the movement.
