October 2019 Protest

The protest against sexual violence and impunity held at the Ateneo de Manila University on 15 October 2019 was a historic one, and it is a story that continues to be written.

In time for the protest’s first anniversary, Time’s Up Ateneo is taking a more active role in the writing of this history, which was indispensable to its own formation a few days later on 17 October 2019.

As a way of memorializing the events that led to the formation of the anti-sexual harassment movement in Ateneo, we will continue to update this website with news clippings, statements, as well as new posts, both looking back and looking forward.
