A legislative panel set up to look into allegations of widespread misogyny in New Jersey politics is set to hold its first meeting next week.

The forum will meet Tuesday evening in Fort Lee and is expected to be the first in a series that aims to shine a light on women’s experiences and to turn around what some officials said is “deeply rooted culture of misogyny.”

Democratic Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg set the panel up after reports in NJ.com from late last year cited women saying they faced misogyny, misconduct and assault.
