Clooney: “There’s a long way from #MeToo to never again.”

December 7, 2018

BOSTON (AP) — Amal Clooney has told thousands of women gathered for a professional conference in Boston that there’s still a long way to go to end sexual harassment and violence even after the historic #MeToo movement.

The international human rights lawyer said Thursday during her keynote address at the two-day Massachusetts Conference for Women that we are “living through a defining moment in the fight for gender equality.” But Clooney said there’s still a “long way from #MeToo to never again.”

Clooney and other speakers reflected on #MeToo a year after sexual misconduct revelations against powerful men exploded into a viral Twitter hashtag and a global movement.

Among them was Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman, who is one of many women who say they were sexually abused by a former Olympic team doctor.
