Description

Next in this series seeking common ground on contentious issues, noted journalist Carol Jenkins (host of Black America on CUNY-TV) explores the recent cultural conversation about sexual misconduct, #metoo, and the shifting power dynamics in society. Why is this movement happening now, has it gone too far—or not far enough—and will there be lasting systemic changes? Have we truly moved from a moment to a movement? Leading writers and thinkers with different points of view join Jenkins in this much-needed dialogue.

Panelists include: Susan Chira, senior correspondent and editor for gender issues at The New York Times; Wendy Kaminer, a lawyer and social critic whose latest book is Worst Instincts: Cowardice, Conformity, and the ACLU; Carol Robles-Rom├ín, president and CEO of Legal Momentum – The Women’s Legal Defense and Education Fund and former deputy mayor for legal affairs and counsel to NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg; and Bianca Williams, associate professor of anthropology at the Graduate Center, who studies topics related to race, gender, and activism, including black feminist leadership and the Black Lives Matter movement.
