#MeToo: New Hampshire Stories of Survival, Reflection and Prevention

Mar 2, 2018

In the months since #MeToo went viral on social media, millions of people across the globe have broken the silence on their stories of sexual assault and harassment. But where do we stand in New Hampshire? How has the Granite State responded to the Me Too movement? What conversations are we having? What actions are we taking?

Months ago, we asked listeners if they used that hashtag, and whether they'd be willing to share their stories and perspectives with us. In this episode, you'll hear from those women, as well as those who study trauma and how to respond to it. You'll hear how one man is moving forward in the age of "Me Too," and what a University of New Hampshire research center is doing to prevent sexual assault and harassment.
