Law.com, In a First, Yale and Stanford Law Journals Team Up for #MeToo Project:
The #MeToo movement has highlighted the problem of men wielding their workplace power to sexually harass women, but the issue of gender-based harassment and discrimination is much broader and pervasive than the current media narrative allows.
That’s the takeaway from a new #MeToo Symposium—a collection of 12 essays from leading employment discrimination law experts—published Monday in a collaboration between the Yale Law Journal and the Stanford Law Review.
In what’s believed to be the first partnership between the journals at the nation’s top two ranked law schools, the collection aims to provide lawyers, lawmakers, activists and scholars with a comprehensive analysis of the #MeToo movement’s legal aspects and to expand the conversation about what constitutes sex-based workplace harassment and discrimination.
