Awakening: #MeToo and the Global Fight for Women’s Rights

Awakening, a global look at the worldwide impact of the #MeToo movement, shines a light on the far-reaching effects of the rise in women’s activism that sprang from a hashtag. Weaving together the personal stories of women from seven vastly different countries, and focusing on the international cultural reckoning the movement sparked, Awakening looks at #MeToo on the world stage through political analysis and anecdotal evidence, providing an in-depth look into how the campaign has reached across borders since its beginning in 2017.

Rachel Vogelstein is the director of the Women and Foreign Policy Program at the Council on Foreign Relations, where she is also the Douglas Dillon senior fellow. During the Obama administration, Vogelstein served as top counselor on women’s issues to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and was a member of the White House Council on Women and Girls. She currently sits on the boards of Planned Parenthood Global and the National Women’s History Museum. She is a contributing writer on global women’s issues at the Washington Post and Foreign Affairs. Vogelstein holds degrees from Columbia University and Georgetown Law School.

Meighan Stone is the senior fellow for Women and Foreign Policy at the Council on Foreign Relations. She previously served as president of the Malala Fund from 2014-2017 and was an entrepreneurship fellow at Harvard’s Shorenstein Center. Stone’s work in women’s advocacy, international development, and media projects has led her to partner with the ONE Campaign, the UN, the World Economic Forum, FIFA World Cup, and the G7 Summit. She has written about global women’s issues for TIME and Foreign Affairs, among others. Stone holds a B.A. from George Mason University and a master’s degree from Columbia University.
