Your #MeToo Story Here
In 2006, women of color who experienced sexual abuse started a grassroots campaign to promote “empowerment through empathy.” This is now an international movement to break the silence that shrouds survivors of abuse. Jewish women have #MeToo stories to tell, and the Jewish Women’s Archive, in partnership with Lilith and other organizations, is documenting Jewish women’s stories of harassment and assault—both within the Jewish community and outside of it. Because the mission is to document women’s experiences, not to pursue perpetrators, you are asked not to name specific individuals in your account.
