#MeToo, Now What?

(Rochester, NY) - #MeToo, Now What?, a new series that goes beyond the headlines about sexual harassment to ask how we got here and how we move forward, premieres Sunday, February 4, 2018 at 11 a.m. on WXXI-TV and will air new episodes every Sunday through March 4, 2018. The series is hosted by executive editor Zainab Salbi, founder of Women for Women International.

In the current moment, when sexual harassment is at the forefront of the national conversation, #MeToo, Now What? aims to take the discussion to another level, engaging both women and men from all generations and walks of life in dialogue about these difficult issues. With the goal of making sense of these tumultuous times, the series seeks to answer this: How did we get here and how can we use this moment to effect positive and lasting change?

Each episode will focus on an aspect of sexual harassment, and will include reporting from Salbi both in the field and in studio as she facilitates open and authentic conversations that penetrate to the heart of the matter. While each episode will stand alone, the weekly in-depth and thoughtful conversations will build on and inform each other. Topics to be explored include the impact of popular culture on women in the workplace, how race and class factor into the discussion, the social costs of pay inequity and gender discrimination, how men can be engaged in this discussion, and, ultimately, how we begin to chart a path forward.

#MeToo, Now What? will draw from a range of guests, including women and men of all ages, races and economic groups — and ordinary citizens from across the nation. Salbi will also welcome activists, journalists, celebrities and leaders from the worlds of media, academics, business, arts, entertainment, fashion and advertising.
