The newest Short Takes: Provocations on Public Feminism features Bernice Yeung’s In a Day’s Work: The Fight to End Sexual Violence against America’s Most Vulnerable Workers. Eileen Boris, Sarah Jones, Collier Meyerson, and Katherine Turk offer their thoughts on the book, discussing the power of worker solidarity and the future of the #MeToo movement. Yeung also offers a response, reflecting on her motivations for writing the book and asking what justice might actually look like. The forum is freely available.
