Chances are if you're on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other form of social media, you've been seeing #MeToo all over the place. CNN has a longer explanation as to why it's trending, but the simple story is that actor and social celebrity Alyssa Milano started a firestorm when she tweeted asking any woman who'd been sexually assaulted or harassed to simply reply with "Me Too".
This got picked up and replied to by dozens of famous women - and men - and thousands more regular people (and it's been speculated that there are likely many more who still don't feel like they can safely speak out). To many, it was illuminating to see the sheer amount of women who'd been affected by sexual assault and harassment during their lives (stats from RAINN here). And really, we can all benefit from an open discussion about problems in our society.
What do you think about #MeToo trending and what that says about our world? How about the response of posting #IWill, and then stating what specifically you plan to do to combat the problem?
