#MeToo: Social media flooded with personal stories of assault

Two simple words have become a rallying cry on Twitter to stand against sexual harassment and assault: "Me too." Social media was flooded with messages Sunday, mostly from women, who tagged their profiles to indicate that they have been sexually harassed or assaulted. 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." An onslaught of women -- some famous and many not -- have tweeted "Me too" and shared their experiences.

The movement started in response to the Harvey Weinstein scandal and its ensuing fallout. Weinstein has been disgraced after several women have accused him of sexual misconduct. In addition to losing his job and his wife, Weinstein was stripped of his membership in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences.

CNN on November 9 called #MeToo "the hashtag that rocked the world," noting that more than 1.7 million women and men have used the hashtag in 85 countries and expressing hope of "a lasting movement that that will create social change and reduce sexual abuse of women."
