A Transatlantic Festival: Liberté d’expression, Free Speech, and "Cancel Culture"

Talk II: Sexuality

Presented on Saturday, April 24, 2021

In English

In the wake of the #MeToo movement, which originated in the US, France began reconsidering its stance towards sex and sexual liberation. Its attitudes that had fostered a culture of seduction and gallantry have been accused of also allowing a pattern of harassment and sexual assault. Some critics complained that this movement, born on social media, went too far, creating a climate of paranoia that limits free behavior instead of building a healthier framework for relationships. How has this movement evolved and changed over the years and should social media become a public court of opinion?
