CAMBRIDGE, Mass. | MIT and LinkedIn co-founder award MeToo leaders
CAMBRIDGE, Mass.— Three women influential in the #MeToo movement are getting an MIT award that rewards disobedience for the good of society.
The MIT Media Lab Disobedience award carries a $250,000 cash prize funded by LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman.
This year’s prize will be shared by Tarana Burke, BethAnn McLaughlin and Sherry Marts. Burke is an activist who coined the phrase “Me Too” more than a decade before it became a slogan for survivors of sexual violence.
