Central Coast Voices: Life after #MeToo

Broadcast date: 7/5/2018

More than six months after the #MeToo movement began, its effects continue to be widely felt across the nation. Hardly a week goes by when another media story isn’t published. The movement which began by exposing the abuses of powerful men in the media industry, has now spread to numerous other industries and occupations, including a variety of well-known corporations and educational institutions.

As a result, providers of sexual assault recovery assistance everywhere are seeing an increased need for their services, and struggling to meet the needs of these victims as they are coming forward.

Join Kris Kington-Barker as she speaks with guests Jennifer Adams, Executive Director for RISE San Luis Obispo County, Kris Roudebush, MFT Therapist and Christina Kaviani,  Director, Safer & Men and Masculinity Programs at California Polytechnic University, San Luis Obispo about what life is like after the #MeToo movement and what we as a community can do to help victims, as well as what can be done to decrease incidences of harassment and abuse in the future.

Central Coast Voices is sponsored by ACTION for Healthy Communities in collaboration with KCBX and made possible through underwriting by Joan Gellert-Sargen.
