(Syracuse, NY – March 14, 2021) Former Biden aide Tara Reade will be the featured guest on Howie Hawkins and Angela Walker’s livestream on Tuesday, March 16  at 8 p.m. EST, as a part of the team’s special presentations commemorating Women’s History Month 2021.

The #MeToo movement spotlighted how powerful men used their advantageous positions for self-gratification.  Tuesday’s discussion will serve to analyze root causes stemming from patriarchy and the gender roles imposed under capitalism, with the aim of demonstrating how people who do not present as male can work to end sexual assaults and uproot the system that enables such incidents.

A year ago, Tara Reade charged that now-president Joe Biden sexually assaulted her when she worked in his Senate office in the early 1990s

Ms. Reade’s story has been corroborated publicly by three people who spoke with other news organizations, saying she told them in the past about the alleged assault.

Last year, seven women — including Reade — publicly announced that Biden made unwanted physical contact with them: touching their shoulders, smelling their hair. This prompted Biden to release a video and tweet addressing their concerns.

Also appearing in Tuesday’s live stream is Annika Leonard, a nationally-known consultant and trainer in the prevention and intervention of gender-based violence and trauma. She honors and holds space for people most impacted by violence by presenting workshops and keynote speeches via her Priceless Incite organization.

The livestream will be broadcast on the YouTube, Facebook, Twitch and Twitter profiles of the Hawkins/Walker campaign (see below for information) to hear Ms. Reade and Ms. Leonard detail how even lower-grade inappropriate conduct can have real consequences for a woman’s career, and how rape culture remains pervasive in this country.

Howie Hawkins and Angela Walker were the 2020 nominees for president and vice president from the Green Party and the Socialist Party USA.
