“Nireak ere bai: the Me Too Movement in the Basque Country”
Presented by Nikki Gorrell, Associate Professor of Anthropology, College of Western Idaho
Basque Museum & Cultural Center
This presentation will feature findings from fieldwork in both the Spanish and French sides of the Basque Country that document the grass-roots campaigns to raise awareness of sexual violence in the Basque Country. Basque women are reclaiming the traditional image of ideal peasant farm wife and mother and turned this imagery into a ‘punk’ version of strength and resilience inspiring powerful conversations.
