There is a paradigm shifting power to the hashtag #metoo.

In 2017 part of the world woke up to a simple and stark truth–sexual harassment and abuse is not acceptable. It never has been, but now we have the ability to ensure it doesn't prevail.

With this vision, the University of Hong Kong, Camel Assembly, Mettā and {embrace} worldwide invite you to a listening session. Listening sessions provide for a safe space to gather to identify sexual harassment; discuss the impact it has had on your life; generate responses as tools for when you find yourself in an uncomfortable situation; and outline how to report an incident.
Note: In January, a second '#MeToo now what' will be facilitated, including men. Please RSVP here.
