    Rachel Vogelstein#MeToo Goes Global – Rachel Vogelstein

    Tuesday, January 29, 2019 (Lunch)

    TIME: 11:30am – Bar opens; 12:15pm – Lunch served; 1-2pm – Presentation and Q&A

    Since the #MeToo movement went viral in the United States, it has gone global in nearly 100 countries using the hashtag to demand change. At the Council on Foreign Relations, research suggests that technology has accelerated the global women’s movement to powerful and disruptive effects. While suffrage marches took months or even years of planning in the early twentieth century, the women’s movement today employs social media tools to mobilize millions in a matter of weeks or even days. The current rise of women’s activism has possibly sparked the most widespread cultural reckoning on the rights of women in history—and has the power to fundamentally change the way we work, govern, and negotiate. This presentation will outline how the movement has taken hold in countries all over the globe and what outcomes it has achieved.

    Rachel Vogelstein is the Douglas Dillon Senior Fellow and Director of the Women and Foreign Policy program at the Council on Foreign Relations, writing frequently in the Washington Post, Foreign Affairs, and other leading publications on some of the most important issues facing women globally. During the Obama Administration, she was a member of the White House Council on Women and Girls and was a top official in the Office of Global Women’s Issues at the Department of State.
