In October 2017, #MeToo went viral. Since then, we've watched controversy erupt around well-known men and women. We've discussed #NotAllMen, toxic masculinity and trolls. We've seen the #MeToo movement evolve and start to accuse itself - has it gone too far?? Is it enough? What does it mean in this country?

Coeditors Christie Nieman, Maggie Scott and Miriam Sved discuss the stories they collected from the Australian experience within a global movement of solidarity.

Christie Nieman, Maggie Scott and Miriam Sved, together with Natalie Kon-Yu, are a Melbourne-based feminist group of writers, editors and academics. They have published two previous anthologies on the female experience, 'Mothers & Others' and 'Just Between Us'.
