The #MeToo movement has been hailed as the next wave of global feminism. As stories of abuse and sexual harassment became public starting in October of 2017, a sense of optimism and progress was in the air. More than two years later, we examine the progress and the backlash, as well as the long-term implications of the movement for gender equality.
