The Emotional Labor Union: #metoo

  • The Lemon Collective 3015 Georgia Avenue Northwest Washington, DC, 20001 United States (map)
every protest. every voice. every
sound we have made. in defense
of our existence. has shaken the
entire universe. it is trembling.

The explosion of #metoo in October 2017 is changing everything. Or at least it feels like it has. There's a renewed hope in the air that sexual harassment and assault will become a thing of the past. That women - by speaking out - may finally be able to assert autonomy over their own bodies.

Whether you participated online in #metoo or behind closed doors with close friends - we all have stories. Maybe you weren't sure if what happened to you counts as sexual assault. Maybe you brushed it off as 'just something that happens to women.' Maybe you stood your ground and found a way to take back your autonomy. Whatever the outcome we are all survivors and our stories deserve to be told because our voices and our experiences are powerful.

Come share your stories* or share how this movement has affected you. We'll also brainstorm ways to keep this momentum going. TICKETS ARE REQUIRED. 

*this topic can be triggering for some. No one will be pressured to share but the door is always open for those who do.

**this session will be recorded and potentially published as a podcast. Everyone will have the option to have their identities kept anonymous.
