This course will examine the unfinished work of the #metoo movement. It will take its focus from two prominent critiques of #metoo: first, that it failed to address sexual harassment and sexual assault beyond the cases of relatively privileged white women in the entertainment industry or the professions; and second, that the increased enforcement against sexual violence that it contemplates will feed a carceral system that has devastating, disproportionate effects on communities of color. After briefly revisiting the #metoo movement itself, the course will examine contexts such as tipped and low-wage labor, work performed in home, and sexual violence perpetrated not in the workplace but in the street, and by law enforcement officials. It will then consider the critique of "carceral feminism" and look at efforts to address sexual violence through non-carceral frameworks such as restorative and transformative justice.
