Learning from #metoo/#churchtoo: Intersectionality, Solidarity, and the Church

Join us for this critical conversation with Dr. Natalia Imperatori-Lee.

From the session description: “In recent years the #metoo and #churchtoo movements have emerged online to highlight the ubiquity of sexual abuse and harassment in secular and sacred institutions. The importance of these movements in making visible the price of patriarchal and misogynistic social structures cannot be underestimated, and they ahve laid bare the ways in which women are silenced, policed, and abused in every day life. The movements’ outcomes have not been merely negative, however. In them, Catholics who continue to weather the sexual abuse crisis in their own church can find paths toward renewed solidarity and allyship, intersectional activism and reflection, and a church that strives to be a sacrament of God’s reign.”

This session was originally broadcast as a webinar on Tuesday, July 14, 2020 as part of GIA Publications’ “Summer Series.” For more conversations, check out the series playlist on the GIA YouTube channel.
