This volume in the series joins titles on vaping and taking a knee. Hillstrom (Black Lives Matter: From a Moment to a Movement; Defining Moments: Roe v. Wade) provides highly readable material on the movement that gave survivors of assault and harassment a voice. She covers landmark events, explores the impact of #MeToo, and profiles key movement members including founder Tarana Burke. This accessible and nonintimidating work explores #MeToo beyond its meteoric rise as a Twitter hashtag. Further reading resources aid deeper study.
VERDICT The #MeToo issues show no signs of dissipating, and a reliable reference on the topic will benefit patrons interested in learning more.
