Powerful men exposed as serial harassers and abusers. Challenges to the established practice of valuing women for their sexuality more than their ability. The overdue airing of the voices that have been silenced for too long. Public outcry for accountability has produced a powerful new platform for addressing the inequities around gender and power in our fast-changing culture. One year out from the arrival of the #MeToo movement, this provocative Yale panel will explore the emerging new understanding of gender-based violence and harassment and their effect on their (mostly) female survivors, while considering how the best of our philosophies and theologies can set a new trajectory toward a healthy, humane, and equitable culture around gender and power. Panelists include:

· Kaji Douša ’06 M.Div., Senior Pastor at Park Avenue Christian Church, New York City
· Serene Jones ’85 M.Div., ’91 Ph.D., President of Union Theological Seminary and former Yale Divinity School professor
· Galen Sherwin ’94 B.A., Senior Staff Attorney at the Women’s Rights Project of the ACLU (moderator)
· Carmelyn P. Malalis, Chair and Commissioner, New York City Commission on Human Rights
· Josef Sorett, Associate Professor in the Religion Department and the Institute for Research in African-American Studies at Columbia University, Director of the Center on African-American Religion, Sexual Politics and Social Justice (CARSS)
