A virtual symposium to celebrate the publication of The Routledge Handbook of the Politics of The #MeToo Movement, edited by Giti Chandra and Irma Erlingsdóttir, will be held on Thursday 3 December 2020, 16.00-17.30 GMT.

The book identifies thematic and theoretical areas of the #MeToo movement, makes connections between the ways in which it has panned out in different parts of the world, views it within the context of the many feminist and gendered struggles already in place and of the solidarities with similar movements across countries and cultures. With contributions from gender experts spanning a wide range of disciplines including political science, history, sociology, law, literature, and philosophy, the book has contemporary relevance for scholars, feminists, and gender researchers across the globe.

The virtual launch will be in the format of a Zoom Webinar, registration here.
