#METOO HASHTAG TRENDING AS WOMEN AND MEN SHARE STORIES OF ASSAULT

Social media lit up on Sunday as men and women spoke up about surviving sexual assault after Alyssa Milano urged survivors to tweet #MeToo to show the “magnitude of the problem.” The movement gained momentum following the legions of women who are sharing their sexual assault stories at the hands of mogul Harvey Weinstein. Actresses Anna Paquin, Debra Messing and many others chimed in and #MeToo quickly became the top trending topic in the U.S. and globally.

“When we hear cases of sexual abuse, harassment, and assault play out in a public way, it gives us all extreme heartache but also, strength and fortitude.” – Alyssa Milano
