What's Next for #MeToo
On Wednesday, March 4, YW Calgary hosted the sold-out YWHISPER Fundraising Gala at the Telus Convention Centre. Keynote speakers Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey took to the podium to tell the timely story of Harvey Weinstein’s decades of sexual harassment, his trial and the recent guilty verdict. The Pulitzer Prize-winners spoke to over 1,000 attendees about their journalistic investigation and what they foresee for the future of the #MeToo movement. The energy of the evening was empowering and an appropriate precursor to International Women's Day this past Sunday, March 8.
