The #MeToo-movement was brought into the spotlight by the shocking revelations of sexual harassment and power abuse in the film industry. Meta Film has produced a #MeToo mosaic, engaging 100 talented Danish actresses and actors to pass on the #MeToo torch to the entire Danish society.

The #MeToo mosaic illustrates how sexism and sexual abuse are problems ingrained in the very fabric of society – and not solely related to the film industry.

100 actresses and actors interpret #MeToo experiences from 100 Danes. The individual stories are very different to each other and come from people of all walks of life – the parking warden, a professor, a cleaner, a young sports talent, a psychologist, an asylum seeker and stories from many other industries as well as personal stories from the private sphere.

about the project

Why did we produce this #MeToo mosaic

Our objective with the #MeToo mosaic is to extend the debate from the film industry into the broader society. The #MeToo movement gained momentum with the Harvey Weinstein case. Therefore there has been a lot of attention on the stakeholders of the film industry. But #MeToo is not merely about this. It’s much more. It’s about society as a whole. About an inherently sexist culture. This is what we try to illustrate with the #MeToo mosaic. Read more...

Statistics

The numbers speak for themselves

Denmark has an unfortunate 1st place among EU countries, when it comes to the number of women (37%) who have experienced sexual harassment within a period of 12 months. (The numbers cover both work and leisure time).  
80% of Danish women have experienced some type of sexual harassment after the age of 15.
52% of Danish women have experienced physical or sexual violence after the age of 15.  
Almost 1 out of 4 Danish women have experienced stalking.
Sexual harassment is taboo for both women and men, why many remain silent about their experiences. It is estimated that only between 5 and 30% of all those who experience sexual harassment in the work place, will report the issue. Same goes for forced sex and attempted forced sex, were many cases never get reported.
Reasons why so few report sexual violations or violence, span across fear of unemployment, fear of reprisal, hostility against victimisation, fear of becoming labelled prudish or that the authorities will not take them seriously. These ingredients have created a culture of silence.
Around 1 in 6 female members of the trade union HK - 17 % - have had unsolicited sexual advances happen to them in their career. While only 6% of the male members say the same.
20% of female members of the trade union 3F have experienced sexual harassment from co-workers.
Within the past year, 1 out of 10 women have experienced groping at university or at their student jobs.
This average compensation sums for victims of sexual harassment have remained the same nominally for 20 years.
