The Forum at Dana Hall School is a symposium series designed to examine a topic of particular relevance to girls and girls education. In May, the School hosted a group of experts for a panel discussion about ongoing societal concerns regarding the prevalence of sexual assault and harassment and the significant awareness that is being raised throughout our culture as a result.
The momentum of the #MeToo era has raised several questions for parents and educators. How can we use this moment to educate and empower the girls and young women we support? What lessons can we teach in the age of #MeToo? How can we empower girls to learn from those who are using this time as a moment of awareness, evolution and revolution?
On May 3, 2018, panelists provided developmentally-appropriate and practical strategies for parents and educators seeking to support girls and start thoughtful discourse in this complex climate.
