For decades, sexual harassment and assault were considered taboo, secretive topics. However, one hashtag aims to change that. The #MeToo movement was started by a simple tweet from actress Alyssa Milano to bring awareness to the often ignored issue of harassment and/or assault. The impact was profound. In the last 24 hours, the hashtag had been tweeted nearly half a million times, a spokesperson from Twitter confirmed. #MeToo not only brought people from around the world together, but it shed light on previously skimmed sexual predation issues, such as that of Weinstein and Cosby. It showed the magnitude of victims, and that there is a lot of work to be done.
