Thousands of women post “me too” on Twitter to highlight extent of sexual harassment

Alyssa Milano starts #MeToo hashtag for sexual harassment victims

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

Thousands of women are identifying themselves as victims of sexual harassment or assault following a call to action propelled by actress Alyssa Milano in the wake of Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein's downfall over of allegations of sexual misconduct spanning decades. Among the chorus of voices from the public, celebrities such as Lady Gaga, Debra Messing, Anna Paquin and Sophia Bush, voiced their support.

It started with Alyssa Milano, who tweeted the following on Sunday afternoon.

Milano was one of the early responders to fellow Charmed co-star Rose McGowan's #WomenBoycottTwitter protest on Friday.

Women listened. Within hours, tweets with the words "me too" began appearing in droves.

Target Expanding Google Express Voice Ordering
The consumers will be able to continue to be able to control the device using the " Ok Google " or " Hey Google " hotwords. And he also believes that this voice-shopping will be of more widespread in the upcoming years.

"I have always known that it is more widespread than acknowledged and to have these stark visual moments on social media is horrifying and heartbreaking", Goodman told the Thomson Reuters Foundation by phone. "Harvey has a wife with whom I have had the privilege of working these past five years in the show Project Runway All Stars. Georgina Chapman is my friend".

The declarations also took over Facebook and reportedly French women did something similar by tweeting their experiences of being sexually harassed at work using the hashtag "balancetonporc" or "squeal on your pig".

The MeToo Twitter campaign was at least the second of its kind since decades of sexual abuse allegations emerged against film producer Harvey Weinstein.

I've been seeing survivors feel guilty that they're not talking about their own personal experiences amidst everything, and others who have been urging them to come forward. Most importantly, it has convinced several women to share the abuses they have been victims with the Canvas.

McGowan has alleged that Weinstein raped her.
