The #MeToo movement has already made a huge impact on the lives of women everywhere (and all humans, TBH), but what comes next is a question on the minds of many. PBS just announced that a miniseries, set to premiere February 2, will take a shot at addressing that giant puzzle.

The five-part show called #MeToo, Now What? will take a deep dive into sexual harassment and assault by discussing the related issues with women and men of all ages and from all walks of life, according to a press release. It will tackle big questions, like whether this movement will spearhead lasting change or if it will end up as a blip on the radar of time, something mostly swept under the rug of history books.

Expect the conversations—led by host Zainab Salbi, founder of the organization Women for Women International—to be intense, and potentially triggering: Each episode is set to focus on a different type of sexual harassment, and the interviews will be with private citizens, celebrities, politicians, and media leaders alike.

“In order for this conversation to create true cultural change, we must talk with the man on the street, in our lives, our colleagues and friends. Equally, we need to have the conversation with the women in our lives to examine why, when we’ve seen sexual misconduct, we’ve often looked the other way when it didn’t impact us directly.” —Zainab Salbi, host of the miniseries

“In order for this conversation to create true cultural change, we must talk with the man on the street, in our lives, our colleagues and friends,” Salbi said in the release. “Equally, we need to have the conversation with the women in our lives to examine why, when we’ve seen sexual misconduct, we’ve often looked the other way when it didn’t impact us directly.”

At the very least, I’m hoping the miniseries will open even more eyes even wider to just how pervasive this problem really is.

These are some of the most empowering moments of 2017 on Instagram. Also, this is how the #MeToo creator kicked off 2018 on an especially woke note.
