Over 800 people have signed up for an International Conference about the #MeeToo movement at Harpa. Katrín Jakobsdóttir, the Prime Minister of Iceland, opened the conference today in Reykjavík, Iceland.
The three-day gathering will explore why the movement first gained traction, and the effect it has had across different countries and sectors. Women with disabilities, care workers and migrant women whose voices have not typically been heard since the movement began as a hashtag in October 2017 will be among the 80 participants from around the world to share their stories and discuss how to keep up the momentum to tackle sexual abuse and assault.
