Panel Discussion #MeToo and #TimesUp

Harnish brings up the Teen Vogue article where interviewed 54 women at the festival this year and they all stated they had been sexually harassed or assaulted during the festival. Papisova states in her article that in the 10 hours she was in attendance she was groped 22 times. The stories described many predatory behaviors.  Harnish states that men must be a positive force in this change as well.

Berman discusses production a film, Nanny Diaries with Harvey Weinstein. She discusses that she was one of the few female directors for production. She states that it was a horrific experience. She is tortured by the thoughts of what may have happened to her crew and actors on set. She really now questions and tries to remember has she missed something.  The #TimesUp legal fund is for all sexual assault and harassed victims. This fund in a few months has raised over 26 million dollars.

Dowd brings up the fact that this is a revolutionary change. Women and many human beings will lead the way to perpetuate this systemic change. We need to empower with the stories that are being told. This needs to change on many levels. He believes that this is our time and that the time is up.

Lesley Wexler, a Law professor at the University of Illinois, asks, “I am wondering about the thoughts you have for sort of accountability and reckoning with the past as you look forward and make all these efforts to be more inclusive the future?” Nava replies, “It is something we are grappling with at the Academy it is very very difficult issue it is a very very difficult issue to deal with.”

Conversations Around #MeToo and #TimesUp

Jennifer Robbennolt, Colleen Murphy, and Lesley Wexler argue that “reformers of the burgeoning #MeToo movement ought to heed the core principles of restorative and transitional justice and take into account the needs of both victims and offenders, as well as the larger community.”

Diane Warren, a collaborator on Til It Happens to You states, “this song became something more than ever expected. Listening to the stories of these victims compelled me to write the song. I want this song to be an inspiration to all going through a difficult time.” at The Creative Arts Emmys. This song has carried this message to many sexual assault victims and many more.

Ashley Judd, Annabella Sciorra, and Salma Hayek spoke to the effects ushered in by the producer’s downfall. “The changes we’re witnessing are driven by the powerful sound of new voices, of different voices, of our voices joining together in a mighty chorus that is finally saying time’s up,” Judd added.

Statistics

90% of female concertgoers have been harassed at a music event. (Chicago Tribune)

The statistics, “Every 98 seconds, an American (this is not just a woman issue) is sexually assaulted. And every 8 minutes, that victim is a child. Meanwhile, only 6 out of every 1,000 perpetrators will end up in prison.” (RANN)

What You’ll Need To Know

Combine 1 cup quinoa with 2 cups water in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer until quinoa is tender, about 15-20 minutes. Remove from heat and let is sit for 5 minutes. After it has cooked and rested, use a fork to fluff and separate the grains.

Season the sea bass with salt and pepper.

In a large saute pan over medium heat, add the coconut oil and heat the oil to a slight smoke. Add 1 sprig of fresh thyme to the saute pan and sear the sea bass skin side down for 3/4 of the cooking time about 7 minutes. This will give the fish a nice crisp skin and golden color. Carefully turn the fish over, to finish the other side. Remove the sea bass and hold in a warm place.

In a mixing bowl, add the diced mango, purple onion, cilantro, tomatoes, jalapeño, lime juice and salt and mix together.

Plate your ingredients with 1/2 cup cooked quinoa, sea bass and mango salsa on top (roughly, 1/4 cup.)
