The Zeitgeist Series: Rage, Rape and Revolution description
With the ubiquity of sexual harassment and gendered assault gaining a new prominence in the #MeToo era, women dared to hope that a new age was dawning. That perpetrators might be held accountable for the crimes they commit, the pain they cause and the careers or lives they destroy. But has anything really changed?
