Professor De Robertis Discusses Why Listening to Women Is a Must

Wednesday, December 06, 2017

EAST BAY EXPRESS -- Carolina De Robertis is the author of three award-winning, internationally best-selling novels, and editor of the recent anthology “Radical Hope: Letters of Love and Dissent in Dangerous Times”. She lives in Oakland with her wife and two children, and teaches at San Francisco State University.

De Robertis wrote this opinion piece for the East Bay Express.

“The current wave of the #MeToo movement — founded by the visionary activist Tarana Burke, now sweeping over us — expands the spectrum to all women who’ve not only been raped, but also sexually assaulted or harassed. Which reveals that the ‘lucky ones” have their stories, too. Who among us has really been spared?”

“And if all of us spoke, just imagine the roaring.”
