#MeToo took social media by storm in 2017; the hashtag has been shared millions of times at this point and became a rallying cry for women’s marches, activism, and protest. Spreading off the internet, the symbol can now be found everywhere: from tee shirts to legislation. But what does it mean? What is the history of the movement? What are its long term goals? In this talk Dr. Catlyn Keenan will trace the founding of the movement in 2007 through its current initiatives. Warning: this talk contains frank discussions of sexual violence.

Dr. Keenan teaches philosophy, religion, and women and gender studies at Front Range Community College, where she has been employed since 2001. Her work focuses on religion, race, violence, sexualities, and popular culture. She can be found at catlynkeenan.com and her first book, Strip: The Making of a Feminist, (published under Catlyn Ladd) can be found anywhere books are sold.

Salon duc Tape, a public forum sponsored by the Fort Collins Community Action Network (FCCAN) meets on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of each month from 7:00 — 9:00 p.m. at the FoCo Café, which is located at 225 Maple Street. Light refreshments will be available. The formal program will begin at 7:10. For more information, email us at info@fccan.org, or call us at 419-8944.
