#MeToo: Social Media Flooded With Stories of Sexual Harassment and Assault

In wake of sexual misconduct allegations against disgraced mogul Harvey Weinstein, women are sharing stories on social media to demonstrate the prevalence and scope of sexual harassment and assault.

Alyssa Milano is credited with sparking the movement after tweeting a note that reads, “Suggested by a friend: ‘If all the women who have been sexually harassed or assaulted wrote “me too” as a status, we might give people a sense of the magnitude of the problem.'” She followed up her tweet showing she has been a victim as well, writing, “Me too.”

Debra Messing, Lady Gaga, Sophia Bush, and Gabrielle Union were among the figures in Hollywood who joined in on the conversation. Thousands of users tweeted “Me too” and shared their experiences on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

Men also added their voices in support. “Hamilton” actor Javier Munoz wrote, “I don’t know if [it] means anything coming from a gay man but it’s happened. Multiple times.”

Dozens of women have come forward over the course of the past week to accuse Weinstein of sexual misconduct. On Saturday, Weinstein was stripped of his membership in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, while last week, he was ousted from his own indie film studio, the Weinstein Company.
