ONE YEAR AFTER #ME TOO: ASSESSMENT AND PERSPECTIVES
#METOO AND THE FALL OF IDOLS: THE ‘BEGINNING OF THE END’ OF IMPUNITY FOR CRIMINAL ARTISTS
Feminist author and translator, Lise Bouvet will address a major issue of #MeToo: the impunity of powerful men, notably artists like pedo-criminal filmmaker Roman Polanski. She will examine the patriarchal mindset behind the "artistic" justifications of the social impunity of criminal artists, especially filmmakers, which the #MeToo movement has begun to put an end to, partly because it started at the heart of the film industry, with the denouncing of a big Hollywood producer.
