    The 2017 Liberta Awards!
    2017 will go down in history as the year that misogyny got slapped upside the head. We hope the revelations, scorn, and sanctions against sexual harassment and assault perpetrators will help change the climate that has long made women and gender non-conforming people second class citizens and prey for those in power.
