Limited Capacity seats available

CNN Africa will  debate how social media can be (and is being used) to drive the conversation beyond the Western #MeToo movement to include African voices who have also been victims of abuse and harassment.

We will speak to some of the Nigerian #Silencebreakers who have been brave enough to share their stories with us and also women who have spoken out via social media about their experiences. This session will also include women who have started using the #NoMore hashtag on social media to drive the Nigerian narrative around this issue.

The CNN Debate: How Can Social Media Be Used To Drive The African MeToo Conversation? will also include male allies who can help to push the conversation into places where women are often shut out to bring about awareness and a mindset shift.
