Harvey Weinstein might not be the first man of power to be accused of sexually harassing or abusing women, but this issue has certainly turned into a movement for those who have experienced this horrific treatment.

Actors such as Ashley Judd, Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow, Heather Graham, Cara Delevingne and many more were affected by this man and have spoken out, inspiring other women to speak up.

Many women who have been victims of sexual assault in their lifetime posted #MeToo on their social media pages which went viral earlier this week. This hashtag campaign, inspired by actor Alyssa Milano and started by activist Tarana Burke, showed all the magnitude of this important issue.

“My hope is people will get the idea of the magnitude, of just how many people have been affected by this in the world, in our lifetimes, in this country,” Milano said in a phone interview with The Associated Press. “The most important thing that it did was to shift the conversation away from the predator and to the victim.”

Men also used the hashtag to share their own experiences with sexual harassment.

Let’s hope this movement sparks change in our society and let’s hope those who have been affected by sexual abuse continue to speak up and demand justice.
