My Facebook feed over the past day has read something like “me too… me too… me too”. I would imagine a lot of women have been seeing the same thing.
Alyssa Milano – whose former Charmed co-star, Rose McGowan, has made some of the most powerful accusations against Harvey Weinstein – started the movement yesterday: “If you’ve been sexually harassed or assaulted, write ‘me too’ as a reply to this tweet.”
So far, she’s had more than 50,000 replies. The hashtag has been tweeted more than half a million times. More than six million Facebook users have put it in a status update.
Some women are sharing their stories of harassment and assault. Some are just leaving it at “me too”.

Because I was shamed and considered a “party girl” I felt I deserved it. I shouldnt have been there, I shouldn’t have been “bad” #metoo
