In 2017, thousands of women began to share their stories of sexual assault and harassment in the social media branch of the #MeToo movement. As a result, widespread recognition of this issue swept across the internet and spurred social activists to motion. However, now that we recognize the problem exists, where do we proceed into making real change? This is the question at the center of Kristine Reynardus and Evelyn Mangold's talk on how to incorporate men into the discussion of sexual assault, and how this can help society move past the hashtag. Kristine Reynardus is a senior studying Public Health born and raised in Miami, FL. Along with her desire to improve the health of others, she has always had a passion for art and graphic design. She hopes to combine these two fields via health interventions targeted at younger generations through social media. Kristine was a head intern for the sexual health podcast, The Sex Wrap, where she produced original content weekly to promote new episodes. She hopes to pursue a career with these combined passions while advocating for human rights and health.
Evelyn Mangold is a senior at the University of Miami. She is double majoring in Public Health and Psychology in her fourth year. At the University of Miami, Evelyn has been involved in raising awareness about sexual assault on campus, through her work with K[no]w More, a campaign she co-created in November 2017. She was a head intern on a sex positive podcast, The Sex Wrap, and interned last semester at the Women’s Fund of Miami Dade. Evelyn is passionate about women’s rights, and is dedicated to pressuring institutions to be proactive, instead of reactive in preventing sexual assault. She believes the best way to combat sexual assault is by facilitating conversation, and starting sexual education when children are young. Evelyn hopes to figure out a career that will intersect policy, health disparities and women’s empowerment. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
