Me too – Special Issue of Rejoinder
The me too movement, founded in 2006 by activist Tarana Burke to help young American women of color heal from sexual assault, has gone global. Survivors around the world are giving unprecedented voice to stories of violence and abuse.
The next issue of Rejoinder will explore the history, present, and future of me too as it relates to contemporary feminist mobilization and theorizing.
Contributions are invited that explore any aspects of me too, such as how the movement travels across different contexts (such as the home, the academy, the workplace), through different forms of media and face-to-face interactions. What are the most pronounced effects of me too? And what difference does adding the hashtag make? Submissions (including essays, commentary, criticism, fiction, poetry, and artwork) should address this theme from feminist, queer, social and racial justice-inspired perspectives. The editors particularly welcome contributions at the intersection of scholarship and activism.
Please send completed written work (2,000-2,500 words max), jpegs of artwork, and short bios to the editor, Sarah Tobias (stobias(at)rutgers(dot)edu) by December 19, 2018.
