The dust has far from settled on #MeToo, “a movement that represents probably the greatest and most conspicuous collaboration of women since the suffragettes”, according to Sam George-Allen. With the viral hashtag in regular rotation in more than 85 nations and aftershocks still rippling around the world, feminists from Indonesia, Australia, Pakistan, and Turkey convene to discuss life after #MeToo.

Sebuah akhir masih jauh dari #MeToo, “sebuah gerakan yang barangkali mewakili kolaborasi terbesar dan paling mencolok dari para wanita sejak diberikannya hak pilih”, menurut Sam George-Allen. Dengan tanda pagar viral yang dilontarkan secara reguler di lebih dari 85 negara dan gebrakan lain yang masih terus berlanjut di seluruh dunia, para feminis dari Indonesia, Australia, Pakistan, dan Turki berkumpul untuk membahas kehidupan setelah #MeToo.
