Alyssa Milano’s #MeToo Social Media Campaign Brings Awareness to Sexual Assault

A social media campaign featuring two simple words are uniting hundreds of thousands of victims of sexual harassment and assault.

Those words? Me too.

Actress Alyssa Milano began the movement to bring traction to society’s prevalence of sexual misconduct.

“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 an 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.”

Within a few hours, individuals began flooding Facebook and Twitter with hundreds of thousand responses, showing both solidarity to the campaign and sharing their own harrowing experiences.

However, critics have spoken out against the campaign, questioning if the media attention will indeed enforce a change.
