"I wanted to be able to get people's stories, but not in a way where they felt like I was using them for the purpose of writing about them."

The #MeToo movement, founded by Tarana Burke over a decade ago, has risen to prominence after women have come forward with their stories of sexual assault and harassment, sometimes by Hollywood stars and celebrities. But as the movement progresses and the media focuses less on it, what happens now?

Podcast Editor Ryan Nguyen talks with designer Morgan Darby about her cover story on the relevance and ongoing impact of the #MeToo movement. They discuss its lasting impact on survivors and victims, and the different nuances around the terms "survivor" and "victim."

Morgan's cover story: "Still relevant: #MeToo continues to be relevant in individual lives despite diminishing media attention"

Help us save student newsrooms

In conjunction with Save Student Newsrooms day on April 25, we launched our $3,500 campaign to provide our newsroom with some of the tools and resources needed to compete in the digital world.

We are asking for your generosity at this time to help us update our multimedia equipment.

We have not been able be purchase any multimedia equipment since 2013 and are working with lenses that are 17 years old. Unfortunately, we often rely on students using their own equipment.

Your donations will not only help Emerald Media Group produce better content, but it will also better prepare our student journalists for professional positions by giving them opportunities to use state of the art equipment.

Thank you for your continued support and commitment to the Emerald Media Group and our student journalists.
