Join us Monday, June 5th at 7pm for a FREE Presentation from Humanities, Wa speaker, Lauri Hennessey entitled "What I Learned from my #MeToo Journey" followed by the film She Said!

More about She said

New York Times reporters Megan Twohey and Jodi Kantor break one of the most important stories in a generation - a story that helped ignite a movement and shattered decades of silence around the subject of sexual assault in Hollywood.

More about the presentation

As long as there have been men in positions of political power, there have been young women working for them who face harassment in the workplace. While we know sexual harassment happens in many industries and professions, there seems to be a preponderance of such stories around elected officials. And in the days and weeks that follow a new story breaking, part of the narrative often includes victim blaming, both by the elected officials and their supporters. Looking back 30 years after working for Senator Bob Packwood from Oregon, Lauri Hennessey recounts what she learned in the halls of the nation's capital and asks why there are still so many stories about politicians and the women who work for them.

It's pulsing with emotional and social depth, and given that She Said is a familiar story, it's remarkable it can still be insightful and surprising.
Wenlei Ma,
She Said is not self-congratulatory; it's a reminder that empathy can require immense effort, and that even then, such effort might not lead to certain success.
