Feminists have been organizing against gender violence in Mexico for years. But over the last few weeks, Mexican women have taken to social media to call out abusive men in creative industries, starting a new wave of #MeToo. Maria and Julio are joined by Peniley Ramírez, investigative reporter with Univision and columnist with El Heraldo de Mexico, and Emily Corona, freelance journalist and digital intern at Futuro Media, to discuss how the #MeToo movement in Mexico is growing.
