“Because, the power of #MeToo isn’t just naming it. Naming it is just the beginning of the journey” -Tarana Burke

Leading up to BWSS 40 Years Later Commemoration with Tarana Burke at the Orpheum Theatre on November 25th, 2019, BWSS asked local activists to share how “Naming it is just the beginning of the journey”…

“Living in the truth is raw power but it’s not inevitable and it’s especially hard fought for by survivors of violence. I’m grateful to BWSS for fighting for so many women to be able to live their truth. But as Tarana Burke says it is just the beginning: I work for the day where we not only have the power to live in the truth but also the power to create the world we want and deserve.”

-Andrea Reimer
