In the United States and parts of Europe, the #MeToo movement has transformed many industries, including media, by calling out and often toppling powerful men who have harassed and assaulted women (and sometimes other men). In some countries of the Global South, such as India, similar movements are growing to challenge powerful men who abuse women who work for them. But in many nations, predators in our industry and others continue to get away with abusive behavior, and women who complain put themselves at great risk. In this panel, journalists from across the Global South will discuss what it would take to bring the power of #MeToo to their countries.
