#metoo: A Double Edged Sword; Perspectives from Employment Lawyers and a Media Historian

Sexual assault and harassment allegations in the film industry have flooded the headlines over the past several months.  As the sheer number of individual victims empowered to come forward grows exponentially, their voices are testimony to a toxic culture with multiple enablers.  Vanderbilt’s Dean of Humanities and Professor of Communication Studies will first present on the power imbalance in Hollywood that has allowed assault and harassment to thrive.  In response and in light of recent news, a panel of employment lawyers will then discuss sexual harassment in the workplace and the resulting culture change.
