Womxn in Theatre:
Sexual harassment and inequality in Seattle arts

The #metoo and #timesup movements have swept through Hollywood and the greater entertainment industry marking an important shift in our culture. How are these movements transforming the conversation in the Seattle theatre community? How can we create positive change for our current and future practitioners and help to influence gender equality and put a stop to harassment and assault for all. TPS, in partnership with Seattle Womxn Marching Forward, highlights this important conversation as part of the first anniversary of the Seattle Womxn’s March. Gather to hear professionals representing a broad range of disciplines discuss their experiences and observations on how our local industry can elevate these conversations in our own industry and where we must do better.
