The Voices of #MeToo : From Grassroots Activism to a Viral Roar Paperback / softback
The Voices of #MeToo: From Grassroots Activism to a Viral Roar illustrates the complicated, intersectional genealogy of #MeToo - arguably one of the most successful social media projects in recent history.
Exploring intersectional identity politics in #MeToo reveals how marginalized voices are engaged or silenced in the social media juggernaut.
This text analyzes the discursive moment of the movement within diverse communities facing issues of: racism, classism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia, biphobia, ethnocentrism, binaried ideologies, toxic masculinities and systemic oppression.
This book too interrogates the implications of #MeToo including: the experiential duality of public and private citizens; the appropriation and silencing surrounding identity politics and grassroots activism for people of color; the double-bind of oppression and dismissal for the LGBTQ+ community; the varied responses to #MeToo around the developed, developing, and underdeveloped world; the unique experiences and challenges facing citizens with disabilities in discussing #MeToo; and, the discussion of destabilized masculinity for hetero, cisgender men living in the #MeToo moment.
