You've probably noticed "Me too" popping up all over social media. Here's why.. and yes, Harvey Weinstein was the tipping point
If you’ve been sexually harassed or assaulted write ‘me too’ as a reply to this tweet. pic.twitter.com/k2oeCiUf9n— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) October 15, 2017
As the New York Times put it, Harvey Weinstein's fall has opened the floodgates in Hollywood--
Reese Witherspoon says she was abused by a director at 16 and feels "less alone this week than ever" in her career. https://t.co/zMsB1Zj1LP— USA TODAY (@USATODAY) October 17, 2017
These two tweets reminded me of a couple of points that could EASILY get lost in the flurry of #MeToo posts--
Reminder that if a woman didn't post #MeToo, it doesn't mean she wasn't sexually assaulted or harassed. Survivors don't owe you their story.— Alexis Benveniste (@apbenven) October 16, 2017
#MeToo is about supporting victims of all genders & races. Women sticking up for other women is not an attack on men! Quite simple really.— Eleri Jones (@EleriBJones) October 17, 2017
Actress Alyssa Milano said while she was "sickened" by the Harvey Weinstein scandal, she was happy it had opened up a discussion around harassment and female degradation.
This is not the first time #MeToo has been used...
