The Atlantic After Hours: Where Does #MeToo Go from Here?

The #MeToo movement has forced America into a transparent conversation about sex and power. From clear cut cases of assault, harassment and misogyny to poor communication, bad dates and uncomfortable situations — American society is wrestling with what gender and power mean in the workplace and in personal relationships. The debate cuts across culture, gender, class, race and generations, but views on what constitutes a problem and what steps should be taken to change American culture can vary widely. As new revelations roll in and the country continues to wrangle with what this all means, what is the next chapter in the movement? Is the definition of harassment shifting, and who decides? As individuals, society, and workplaces undergo urgent reflection, The Atlantic offers a frank conversation with the writers whose criticism and observation has defined the moment.
