For March 8, International Women’s Rights Day, a new book: “Steady as she goes!”

In 2017, the #MeToo movement called for the free speech of victims of sexual harassment. Millions of women from all over the world spoke with one voice to testify about the abuse they may have suffered. Today, what conclusions can we draw from this episode? If our society seems to be engaged in a necessary reflection on the status of women, with equality between women and men as its horizon, respect for the rights of each woman is still far from being guaranteed in France and in the four corners of the globe.

With a preface by journalist Laure Adler, this new book includes 120 international press cartoons, selected by Cartooning for Peace, which look back at women’s rights in the world after #MeToo. While participating in the denunciation of injunctions and violence against women, they support feminist struggles and their determining issues.
