#MeToo campaign continues to grow on social media

The hashtag was tweeted almost a million times in 48 hours, according to Twitter.

The #MeToo posts on Twitter and Facebook are not referring to faceless perpetrators, they refer to real men like Weinstein.

"As one person tweeted, "#MeToo is just tip of the iceberg.

My initial reaction to finding out the meaning of #MeToo was, "Who hasn't?" Elizabeth Warren, author Jessica Valenti and poet Rupi Kaur.

Weinstein, who insists any sexual encounters were consensual, was expelled last week from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

If it weren't for actress Rose McGowan's rape allegation against Weinstein, the conversation around sexual assault may have never made its way to social media. Not so clear is whether the revelations about Weinstein are truly that meaningful-and whether it will have lasting impact. She writes and teaches about the connection between justice and human flourishing. All rubbish. The truth is much simpler and far less forgiving: we have a problem with sexual harassment in our industry and beyond because men still believe in their own superior genius and the sanctity of their power, and can not accept the equal value of women and the sanctity of our bodies. A culture of sexual misconduct paired with a culture of fear ultimately lead to an acceptance of this misconduct and a society of victims' voices being silenced.

"The news coming out of Hollywood over the past week has been shocking and disturbing - and unfortunately we are a part of it", Blackburn wrote.

The most high-profile sexual harassment scandal in tech involves Uber, the once high-flying ride-hailing startup whose co-founder and CEO, Travis Kalanick, resigned from the top spot in June. Burke, who says in an interview with the Washington Post that this could be the start of something more enduring.

"I was in a pea jacket in my auto", she said. But by refusing to see beyond this (or using it as a defence), you are failing to acknowledge the societal scale of sexual harassment against women.

Maybe for a NY minute. He admitted to being part of the industry's sexism problem.

Before I go into my personal experiences, let me lay out sexual harassment for you (just in case you're not aware). He then messaged me later to say that if I acted "weird" around him the next day he would unfollow me on Twitter. "Women are disclosing that they've been harassed, attacked or abused, sometimes for the first time, and if it isn't for the first time, it's for the first time this publicly". He was charged with aggravated indecent assault but a jury deadlocked on a verdict, and judge declared a mistrial.

Because, make no mistake, until everyone is an ally, harassment will continue.

Argento did not name either of the men she accused. After a police investigation, prosecutors declined to file charges, though they said there was probable cause to arrest him. And while it all started with The New York Times'exposé on film executive Harvey Weinstein, the campaign has exposed how prevalent the problem is everywhere. It doesn't serve them to empower women.

Evoking "Me Too", she said she was sexually assaulted at 19, by a bar owner years older than she was in her hometown of Laredo. Since then, three women have said he attacked them. Leslie Jones was targeted online, on Twitter, and there was not a groundswell of support for her across Hollywood.

The comedian, actor and director has been the subject of "rumors" that he engages in sexually inappropriate behavior with female writers. Hopefully, this will allow survivors to officially come forward and report their experiences more frequently. His downfall was swift and he was soon out of a job though with a reported $60 million payout.

A Facebook user named Gavin Noel Methalaka posted a status saying that he had consciously molested a woman in the past and that he did so without knowing or caring about the consequences of his actions.

In April, the longtime Fox News host was removed from his primetime spot on the "O'Reilly Factor", following multiple accusations of sexual harassment.

"Unfortunately, this kind of sexual predatory behaviour is a lot more common than most of us think it is", said Sheela Raja, a clinical psychologist at the University of IL at Chicago and an author of books on how sexual abuse survivors can overcome trauma.

The R&B legend, 50, was charged with statutory rape and child pornography in 2002 after a video surfaced that appeared to show Kelly having sex and urinating on an underage girl.
