The Powerful Tweets of The Movement of #MeToo



On Sunday evening, actress Alyssa Milano tweeted a note that read "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."

"If you've been sexually harassed or assaulted write 'me too' as a reply to this tweet," she wrote.

These words have become the battle cry on Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram and everywhere else imaginable. These two simple words are showing the magnitude of sexual assault and sexual abuse against women.

"Me too."

Social media has been flooded with messages, mostly from women, who tagged their profiles to indicate that they have been sexually harassed or assaulted. By Monday morning, hundreds of thousands of women had said "me too." Now the number has risen to over half a million "me too" replies.
