On every continent, women are using the new tools of social media to confront one of the oldest barriers to equality: the threat of violence, including sexual harassment, as a tool of male supremacy. In The Global #MeToo Movement, produced by the Berkeley Center on Comparative Equality & Anti-Discrimination Law, 48 authors from 28 countries spanning every continent but Antarctica tell the story of how social media has driven a social movement against sexual harassment, and how the law has responded, often by helping men to push back.
