The anti-harassment #MeToo movement has been named Time magazine’s ‘Person of the Year’.
In the wake of this year’s sexual misconduct behavior disclosures about Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey and many other men, millions worldwide have shared their stories about being sexually badgering and attacked.
The movement started spontaneously in October after actress-activist Alyssa Milano took after on a proposal from a companion of a companion on Facebook and tweeted: “If you’ve been sexually harassed or assaulted write ‘me too’ as a reply to this tweet”.
The hashtag was tweeted nearly a million times in 48 hours. The #MeToo movement was founded by activist Tarana Burke on Twitter a decade ago to raise awareness about sexual violence, AP states.
