#MeToo's for Every Woman Ever Sexually Harassed, Alyssa Milano Says

Thousands of women post “me too” on Twitter to highlight extent of sexual harassment

Actress Alyssa Milano speaks at the 2017 World Of Children Hero Awards at Montage Beverly Hills on April 19, 2017 in Beverly Hills, California. In her 2012 article Limits of a Criminal Justice Response: Trends in Police and Court Processing of Sexual Assault, University of Ottawa criminology professor Holly Johnson found that only three per cent of those charged by police with sexual-assault offences in Canada in 2007 were women, yet 86 per cent of those victimized were women and girls.

The messages kept pouring in not just from women but men too.

Suggested by a friend: "'If all the women who have been sexually harassed or assaulted wrote 'Me too.' as a status, we might give people a sense of the magnitude of the problem'". French actresses are among those who have accused Weinstein of sexual wrongdoing.

In addition to losing his job and his wife, Weinstein was stripped of his membership in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences on Saturday.

Weinstein Co., mired in sex scandal, may be up for sale.

The Wrap said it wasn't long before responses began to pour in, causing #MeToo to trend.

The stone was set in a unique double band ring setting, and both bands were encrusted with smaller diamonds. Even Joe's dad, Kevin Jonas Sr., posted he was "so thrilled" about the pending nuptials.

A number of singers, actors and actresses including Debra Messing, Lady Gaga and Evan Rachel Wood have added their support. Like #BeenRapedNeverReported, #YesAllWomen went viral as women went online to share their own experiences with misogyny and sexually based violence.

Milano costarred with McGowan on the show "Charmed". In it, she explains to be happy to see the discussion extend to all branches of the company but does not linger on the case, Weinstein, and for good reason.

McGowan has become an outspoken online critic of both Weinstein and Hollywood's culture of objectification.

"In a sign that tolerance of such acts is receding in France, on Sunday President Emmanuel Macron said he had started proceedings for Weinstein to be stripped of his Legion d'Honneur, France's highest award".

A third of women between 18 and 34 report being sexually harassed at work, according to a Cosmopolitan survey of more than 2,000 women in 2015.
