 The #METOO Movement and Women's Protest in Spain

The #METOO Movement and Women's Protest in Spain

In March 2018 thousands of women took the streets in Spain to protest against gender inequality, discrimination and sexual Violence following the social media campaigns #metoo, #yotambién and #cuéntalo.
The presentation explores the causes and consequence of the participation in these events using panel survey data. What is the effect of sociodemographic characteristics, motivations and mobilization on the likelihood to take part in the protests? What is the role played by attitudinal priors, social media and celebrities that have engaged in these issues? Does participation in these events make citizens more likely to consider themselves as feminist and to support gender equality? Have these protests elicited a backlash reaction towards more anti-feminist positions?

Eva Anduiza is professor of political science at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona where she is also ICREA Academia research fellow. She directs the research group on Democracy, Elections and Citizenship and has until recently also directed the Master in Political Science. Eva Anduiza is currently 2018-19 fellow at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioural Sciences at Stanford University.

Homeward: Life in the Year After Prison

Homeward: Life in the Year After Prison

  • 2521 Channing Way Berkeley, CA (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

In his talk, Western will bear witness to the lives held captive in America’s experiment with mass incarceration. Homeward: Life in the Year After Prison tells the stories of the men and women he met through the Boston Reentry Study, a series of interviews his research team conducted with people leaving prison for neighborhoods around Boston. They were trying to understand what happens when people return to a community, and the challenges faced by them and their families. How did they look for work and housing? How did they manage their addictions or mental illness, and why did some return to incarceration?

The research showed that imprisonment is followed by deep poverty, in which unemployment is widespread and survival is assisted only by government programs and family support. While earlier studies have focused on the stigma of a criminal record, the men and women of Boston also struggled greatly with human frailty -- mental illness, addiction, and physical disability -- that threatened success after incarceration and impaired the effectiveness of programs. They had experienced serious violence, often as perpetrators, but just as frequently as victims and witnesses, and often since early childhood. Under these conditions, freedom after prison was not a status granted by release, but something attained gradually. Becoming free was a process of social integration where one had to find one’s place with kin and community. Justice in this world can be found more in the abatement of violent environments than in the punishment of violent people. Justice too, must involve the acknowledgement of harm; not just the harms that follow from crime, but also the harms that follow from punishment that are often heaped on the poorest and most vulnerable citizens.
