November 1: POSTPONED Scarsdale, New York : When #MeToo Meets The Midterms


In light of the Pittsburgh attacks, we are canceling, with regret, Thursday’s event When #MeToo Meets the Midterms – How Gender and Politics Interact This Election Season.

We hope to offer some version of this program in the future.

It’s been a year of reckoning for women. There have been countless stories of harassment and assault, of prejudice and power dynamics. Amid the struggles, however, a movement gained traction, creating a sense of strength, solidarity and hope.

Join Forward editor-in-chief Jane Eisner as she leads, “When #MeToo Meets the Midterms – How Gender and Politics Interact This Election Season,” in conversation with Judith Shulevitz, a contributing op-ed writer for The New York Times, and Mattie Kahn, senior editor at Glamour Magazine.
