"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."
