Words Matter: Tara Moss Talks About
the Power of Speaking Out

In an era of cyberhate, anti-feminist ‘men’s rights activism’ and Trump, speaking your mind can feel like a dangerous proposition. Author and human rights advocate Tara Moss talks about how long-standing stereotypes and power structures, combined with abuse of new technologies, continue to limit the amplification of women’s voices and participation in public life. How do we continue to speak out, maintain energy and optimism in an age of ongoing inequalities, cyberbullying and sexism?
