Since the Weinstein scandal broke, millions of women have used the #MeToo hashtag to share their experiences of sexual harassment and abuse. Does this movement represent a watershed moment for women’s rights or does it only empower a small segment of society? Laura Bates talks to Chinese feminism specialist Leta Hong Fincher, activist and author Helen Pankhurst and French journalist Agnès Poirier to explore how different cultural perspectives inform responses to movements like #MeToo and to consider how we diversify the conversation to ensure a global change that works for even the most vulnerable women.

Supported by Plan International UK.
Plan International UK is a global children’s charity. We work to give every child the same chance in life. But not every child is born with the same opportunities. When you’re a girl it’s even harder to be safe, to be in school and to be in charge of your body. We’re working to give every girl the chance to take on the world.
