Tarana Burke Reflects on the #MeToo Movement a Year After the Viral Moment


#viralvideoyoutube

Tarana Burke, the true architect of #MeToo, began her work more than a decade ago in Selma, Alabama. In the year since the movement went viral, Burke has been challenged by the media’s portrayal of #MeToo.

“Our movement work is not about naming and shaming,” Burke said.. “It’s not about calling out perpetrators, it’s not about creating a list. It’s about the people who raised their hand to say ‘me too,’ and what they need.”

To realize how Burke feels these survivors have been left in the lurch, we have to rewind the reckoning.
