In response to the recent live address by Noah Levine of Against the Stream, Buddhist women sit down to discuss their feelings and responses on sexual misconduct in the community and our culture.

With the advent of the #Metoo movement, women have been coming forward more and more, demanding respect and clearer boundaries. This is a phenomenon that is widespread, effecting not only our workplaces, but our entertainment industries, our politics and even our spiritual communities.
