The #Me Too Movement – Transcript
The “Me Too” movement started in 2006 as a social media campaign to raise awareness about sexual harassment and assault. However, it gained widespread attention in 2017 following a series of high-profile sexual misconduct allegations against powerful men in Hollywood. The hashtag #MeToo quickly went viral on social media, with millions of people sharing their stories of sexual harassment and assault. The movement sparked a global conversation about the pervasiveness of these issues and the need for systemic change. It also led to increased media attention on survivors, and a renewed push for stronger laws and policies to protect victims and hold perpetrators accountable. The “Me Too” movement has been a catalyst for significant progress in the fight against sexual harassment and assault, and it remains an important symbol of solidarity for survivors everywhere.
