#MeToo #EnaZeda #MieuPrimeiroAssedio #tystnadtagning #ArewaMeToo

All over the world, #MeToo galvanised generations of women to fight in new ways for their rights. Some had been campaigning for years on feminist causes; some were inspired by a movement that spread like wildfire on social media. Awakening brings together powerful storytelling with political analysis to spotlight brave women in seven different countries who used technology to raise their voices, capture national attention, and sow the seeds for a revolution.

In northern Nigeria, #ArewaMeToo unites Muslim and Christian survivors. In China, the surge in #MeToo activists overwhelms government censors. In Pakistan, women leaders fight digitally for legal solutions to sexual assault. In Brazil, the #MeToo movement inspires young female politicians to stand against reactionary populism in the face of intimidation and murder. In Egypt, activists remain resolute even as the president alleges their campaign amounts to terrorism, slander, and "fake news". And in Sweden, the movement rocks a country prided on their gender equality to the core.

Catalyzed by #MeToo solidarity, fueled by technology, and driven by millions more women than ever before, this connected global movement has already wrought the most widespread cultural reckoning on women's rights in history. Immediate and eye-opening, Awakening champions activists all over the world as they tackle the biggest threats to women in their own societies and fundamentally change the way we work, govern and make peace.
