#MeToo: Sexual Abuse Victims Take To Twitter To Share Their Stories

It’s been a crazy couple of days since Hollywood Executive, Harvey Weinstein was ousted by a number of women for sexually assaulting them.

Lots of people including actors Cara Delevingne and Terry Crews have spoken up about their experiences with sexual harassment, encouraging more victims to open up about their personal experiences.

Last night however, two simple words, Me Too, threw open a floodgate of gut-wrenching abuse stories on Twitter.

Alyssa Milano

Actress Alyssa Milano had called on people who have been victims of any kind of sexual abuse to tweet the two words at her.

“If you’ve been sexually harassed or assaulted write ‘me too’ as a reply to this tweet,” Alyssa wrote.

The tweet quickly went viral getting over 30,000 replies, and the two words, in no time became a trending hashtag.

Thousands of men and women who have had to go through sexual abuse shared their stories opening our eyes once more to the fact that we live in a rape culture and it doesn’t just happen to women.
