High stakes

‘Take power and stay furious’: The way forward for the #MeToo movement

By WITW Staff on February 14, 2018

In a crackling panel discussion at the Women in the World Los Angeles salon on Tuesday night, media professionals from Hollywood and Silicon Valley shared some of their extraordinary experiences at the front lines of the #MeToo movement. Actor and activist Olivia Munn, MSNBC news anchor Joy-Ann Reid, A+E Networks chief Nancy Dubuc, and Recode’s Kara Swisher were joined by host of PBS’s #MeToo, Now What? Zainab Salbi, to consider the way forward for corporate culture, as systemic abuse of power in the workplace is being rocked by a powerful women-led groundswell.

Watch the videos above to hear from Munn about filmmaker Bret Ratner’s erratic claims in response to her allegations of sexual harassment; Reid’s startling insights into why the stakes have changed so dramatically for white women; Dubuc on how she stood up to Harvey Weinstein, even as he threatened to finish her career, and Swisher on the importance of staying furious.
