Archiving #MeToo

Started in 2006 as part of a grassroots campaign to promote “empowerment through empathy” among women of color who have experienced sexual abuse, #MeToo has grown into an international movement to break the silence that shrouds survivors of abuse.

Jewish women—and people of all genders—have #MeToo stories to tell, and we invite you to share yours.

The goal of this project is to create an archival collection to ensure that the breadth of Jewish voices and experiences is captured and preserved during this watershed moment. We are interested in documenting stories of harassment and assault both within the Jewish community and outside of it. Taken together, these stories illustrate the systems and structures that shape women’s experiences, as well as our collective power to make change. This article provides more context on the project.

The following prompts are intended to guide you as you share your own #MeToo story. Feel free to fill out any or all of the text boxes and/or upload an audio clip. Since our mission is to document women’s experiences and not to pursue perpetrators, we ask that you do not name specific individuals in your account. (For more information about reporting and/or legal advice, please see the resources section.)
