Online and in real space, the #MeToo movement has raised awareness of gender inequality — from subtle harassment to sexual predation — to unprecedented levels of discussion. Charlie Rose and Harvey Weinstein have disappearing in shatteringly public falls. Politicians have been forced from office. Bill Cosby has been convicted.
What effect has all this had on the least visible Americans — and can they, too, get justice? Bernice Yeung contributed to a groundbreaking collaboration between the Center for Public Investigation and numerous public media agencies. The resulting exposés, Rape in the Fields and Rape on the Night Shift, won numerous journalism awards. Bernice's new book, In a Day's Work: The Fight to End Sexual Violence Against America's Most Vulnerable Workers, takes the exploration even further. In our This Is Now with Angie Coiro event, we'll probe how much — if any — of the high-profile power of #MeToo might trickle down to these hidden corners of American life.
