"Me Too" trend on Twitter raises awareness about sexual assault

Victims like actress#Alyssa Milano are trying to make the best out of the major attention from media.

"As a #gay male, it can be hard to talk my sexual past, but I stand with everyone who has ever been sexually assaulted or sexually harassed bc it happened to #MeToo", William Morris tweeted.

Twitter has been flooded with the hashtag #metoo by women indicating they have been the victim of sexual violence or harassment.

"We might give people a sense of the magnitude of the problem", said the post.

Milano was one of the early responders to fellow Charmed co-star Rose McGowan's #WomenBoycottTwitter protest on Friday.

A number of allegations have been made against Weinstein and police investigations have been launched in the USA and United Kingdom against the corpulent producer.

At the moment, it's trending on Twitter and being shared widely on Facebook.

The tweet received more than 23,000 comments with many women, including some famous, writing "me too" and even sharing details about their experiences. "Shame is on the attackers, not me", the government official made clear.

It is unclear who started the hashtag - which has been used nearly 6,000 times - but many are replying to actress Alyssa Milano's post explaining the objective of "Me Too".

The movement continues to grow on both Facebook and Twitter while celebrities like Milano continue to promote a positive change in Hollywood and around the world.
