What's next for #MeToo?


What was the original intention behind the phrase “me too,” which sparked the viral hashtag #MeToo? According to the woman who coined the term, the words “say it all.” On “Salon Talks,” Tarana Burke shared where the movement is going next. “If you are somebody who has survived really any kind of trauma and somebody says to you, “me too,” then you know that if nothing else, you have a small connection between that person,” Burke said. “That small connection can be the entry place where you start your healing process.” Burke, who was named as one of Time Magazine’s 2017 persons of the year and appeared at the Golden Globes, also discussed why she finds questions about how men should react frustrating. It shouldn’t be a question of gender, she says.

Watch the full episode with Burke to hear why she started the movement. Tune into SalonTV's live shows, "Salon Talks" and "Salon Stage", daily at noon ET / 9 a.m. PT and 4 p.m. ET / 1 p.m. PT, streaming live on Salon, Facebook and Periscope.
