Host: Alejandra Y. Castillo, CEO of YWCA USA
Guest: Dani Ayers is the Chief Executive Officer of the “Me Too” Movement
Sexual harassment, abuse, and assault are serious and widespread issues that are often used to instill fear, humiliate, or punish; destroy lives, families, and communities; or enforce power dynamics. These previously taboo issues have now been put in the public spotlight and have sparked many new and important conversations due to the “Me Too” movement’s widespread influence around the world.
In this episode, Dani Ayers is the Chief Executive Officer of the “Me Too” Movement, talks about interrupting and eradicating sexual violence to empowering survivors of sexual assault, supporting and activating survivors, and the future of the movement.
