Presented by the NYU Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality. Co-sponsored by the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU.

What does #MeToo look like beyond the boundaries of Europe and North America? This round table brings together feminist scholars and activists to discuss the different iterations of #MeToo in South Asia, East Asia, and the Arab world. Panelists will consider the shape that sexual violence, and contemporary activism against it, take in local contexts of power and privilege in these different sites. Featuring Zineb Belmkadem (#Masaktash, Morocco), Naifei Ding (National Central University, Taiwan), Mona Eltahawy (#MosqueMeToo), Tejaswini Niranjana (Lingnan University, Hong Kong), and Kyla Pasha and Sarah Suhail (The Feminist Collective, Pakistan).

No registration required.
