The Stripes aims to provide a platform for traditionally underrepresented voices to discuss relevant issues pertaining to culture and identity on Princeton's campus and beyond. In keeping with our mission to provide spaces for critical reflection on intersectional identity and life, we are planning to host a panel on how sexual assault has been discussed in the media, especially the hashtags #MeToo. This is especially relevant now as more and more celebrities have come forward with allegations of sexual assault and harassment against prominent figures in the public eye. We also hope to expand on other movements such as #BlackLivesMatter and #SayHerName. We have confirmed several panelists. Among them include: Professor Tanzina Vega of CNN, Princeton’s Director of Sexual Harassment/Assault, Advising, Resources and Education: Jacqueline Deitch-Stackhouse, communications lead for the Movement for Black lives: Chelsea Fuller, and the person behind the #MeToo movement: Tarana Burke.
