shame google translate is so poor… #metoo has become huge in Sweden and yesterday one of the daily newspapers published an open letter from 456 Swedish actresses who all testify to having been subject to sexual harassment in their industry (also, the open letter is behind a paywall, which seems pretty cynical)
also, a very high profile Swedish broadcaster & journalist Alexandra Pascalidou is compiling a book of hundreds of the #metoo stories which will soon be published
in her words
– Jag vill att den ska bli ett verktyg för att hantera de här frågorna och att kunna blicka framåt. Den här diskussionen får inte bara bli ett tomtebloss som slocknar och försvinner ut i cyberrymden, säger hon.
which translates to
“I want this book to be a tool for managing these issues & questions and in doing so take us forward. This discussion cannot be allowed to be sparks that just burn out & disappear into cyberspace” - she says
there have also been pretty sizeable public demonstrations
So yeah, the conversation here at least is beginning to move on to talking about concrete strategies to affect structural change and is really not that focused at all anymore on individual accusations (though there were many in the first week or two)
