Local shelters say they have yet to see an increase in calls or visits. From owning up to gaslighting women for speaking up against harassment and having inappropriately made advances on the domestic worker in their homes, men came out in large numbers to describe how they participated in harassing women and contributed to a culture of silence surrounding harassment. Six months from now if you want to say 'me too, ' it's there. People talk. For women trying to grow in this industry, we are generally put into situations where we can risk everything if we actively speak out. This followed the news that Harvey Weinstein, a powerful Hollywood mogul, had been expelled from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences over multiple abuse allegations. "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", Alyssa wrote.

While #MeToo is clearly showing just how bad this problem is, we now need to act on this movement and start working to change things for the better for all people in the generations to come.

Marlène Schiappa, a feminist and writer who is France's junior minister for gender equality, said on Monday that the government was considering precisely how to define street harassment and how much to fine.

Now she would like to see another movement - from men. Although most people think the idea originated with Milano, the original "Me Too" movement was started by Tarana Burke, and she created the campaign for the youth organization Just Be Inc.in 2007.

"It's probably not likely", Jacob said.

We add our voice here, too, because this is a phenomenon that affects all women, including women on this editorial board and beyond at this news organization. Burke, 44, grew up in the Bronx and has spent most of the past 25 years as an activist and organizer around the country, working to help young people in marginalized communities. She said: "It's so fundamental to the female experience to be mistreated and feel ashamed of it". "There has to be a cultural change". Then, to my total shock, some men took to social media to express how they've wrongfully behaved with women in the past.

The #MeToo movement, which began on social media after a call to action by actress Alyssa Milano on Sunday evening, generated more than 1.3 million tweets by Wednesday morning and hundreds of thousands of posts across Facebook and Instagram, as women and men across the world continue to share stories of the sexual harassment and abuse they've faced.

"It takes peer pressure sometimes and this is incredibly encouraging", Jacob said.

Violating of women and girls happens in epidemic proportions and should be something we can all acknowledge and make a stand against without the revolts "men too". The reaction, mainly from women and from perhaps too few men, has been immediate and brutally honest.

"Just because something is unbelievable doesn't mean it's not true", Jacob said. In a hasty attempt to protect victims, near and dear could curtail the victim's agency by imposing curfews, insisting that they quit their jobs and disallowing to independent access to public spaces. "But nobody's paying attention". Though it would have been better if, when the social media "Me Too" campaign started on October 15th, we had known the whole story about the origins of this inspiring movement, we are glad Burke is receiving the recognition she so justly deserves now.

"There's always a bit of backlash", Esser said.

For those, however, who feel like they're drowning in #MeToo, Burke had this advice: "Disconnect, don't feel guilty about it". These assumptions are nearly fatalistic, implying it is less a choice for a man to do such things and more a natural inevitability.

While some folks simply altered the "Me Too" campaign's message to include not only women, but also trans and nonbinary folks, some have used this campaign to explain why our conversations about sexual assault need to be degendered all the time.
