The “Me Too” movement is an example of how community and togetherness can help bring justice in the community. In my presentation, I will illustrate how this movement has brought awareness to sexism, sexual assault, and harassment within the community, specifically in the workplace and the performing arts. I will emphasize how the Me Too movement acted as a voice for those who for years have felt voiceless, using references to the women who were sexually assaulted by Bill Cosby, founder of ‘Me Too’ Tarana Burke, and West Side Story’s Rita Moreno.
