Sociologist Pepper Schwartz takes the stage 7:30 p.m. Saturday, July 27, at Whidbey Island Center for the Arts in Langley.

Schwartz will address the question: “Have things truly changed?”

In 2017, actress Alyssa Milano posted on Twitter, “If you’ve been sexually harassed or assaulted write ‘me too’ as a reply to this tweet.” That came on the heels of stories by The New York Times and New Yorker about allegations of sexual assault by Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.

Twenty-four hours after her tweet, Milano had 500,000 replies. That ignited the #MeToo movement in the United States.

Tickets can be purchased at wicaonline.org. All seats $25.
