Three years ago this month, stories about movie producer Harvey Weinstein's predatory behavior prompted a tidal wave of revelations about sexual harassment in the workplace and the birth of the #MeToo movement.

The newsrooms that reported on the phenomenon were not immune from revelations of gender inequality, and turned inward to examine diversity and inclusion in their own newsrooms.


This episode features journalists, activists and researchers from Japan, the Middle East and the U.S. to talk about what has — and has not — changed and what the future holds.
