Sexual Harassment: If you’ve been checking your social media feed whether it is Twitter or Facebook you will regularly come across #MeToo campaign which is trending since last week.

In the concept or trend called #MeToo women shares, all phenomenon which they come across in their life and they shares the narration on their personal account of the social media.

The sharing of stories is about the Sexual Harassment or Sexual assault if they ever faced anything like these, unfortunately.

Something which is very common in these harrowing posts by the women is Me too.

Thanks to the American actress and producer Alyssa Milano, #MeToo is now a trend spreading like fire since she posts the same on her social site.

It all began when Milano posted a screenshot of a friend’s suggestion on her Twitter handle where she said that women should come forward to shares the stories about sexual assault if they ever go with instead of hiding it.

The post said that if girls or women wrote ‘Me Too’ as their status or tweet, people might get a sense to analyze this major problem.

So the trend #MeToo started by Alyssa Milano on last Sunday, midnight and it is spread like fire. Within 20 minutes, it had gotten 10,000 replies. As of Tuesday, it has 61,000 — and counting.

With her #MeToo campaign, actor Alyssa Milano launched a movement, encouraging survivors of sexual assault and abuse to speak about it by coming forward.

“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,” she tweeted.

“It’s definitely overwhelming, but I feel like the time was right for this to happen and the fact that I could be a vessel to create change is really special,” Milano tells to the media house Variety.

Milano says she wasn’t surprised by the expression. “There are so many people that have faced this kind of harassment or abuse in their lifetime that the numbers are not really surprising to me at all, sadly,” she says.

“What is surprising is how people are surprised by the numbers. It’s a testament to the fact that people have been shamed into feeling that this is a discussion that they can’t have. Or that they shouldn’t have. Or that they’re blamed or shamed for.”

Her goal, she says, was to get the numbers to a point and this was not ignored by anyone. “I wanted to take the focus off the predator and put it back on the victim,” she says. “We’ve been hearing a lot about those who caused this kind of hurt and heartache and not enough about the victims who have to overcome and heal. I feel like to be able to do that, you have to know you’re part of a community that can support and stand beside you. This is a community that is very large.”

But she hopes #MeToo will it simply turn to be a “hashtag movement,” she says. “I hope this is a shift in the way we look at each other and our coworkers. This is not just a Hollywood issue. This happens every day. This happens everywhere. I’m hoping that by putting this focus on giving the power back to the victims, more women can move forward and won’t be shamed or blamed. Predators will realize they won’t be able to get away with it anymore.”

And yes, she has her own #MeToo story — “too many to count,” she says. She’s not open to reveal details but says she will when the time is right. “I think just to stand in solidarity and say ‘me too’ is what I can give right now,” she says.

The post suggested that if women wrote ‘Me Too’ as their status, people might get a sense of the magnitude of the problem.

And around 30,000 women and a few men which includes, the prominent Hollywood personalities like X-Men actress Anna Paquin, Debra Messing of Will & Grace and Laura Dreyfuss, who starred in Glee.

Now, this trend has received plenty of eyeballs and it is being emphasized in the open discussion about the nasty problem sexual harassment.

Obviously, this campaign is against wrong-doers. However, it is very amazing to see the #MeToo trend is receiving such a huge response from the women of the world.

It also encourages women to speak up on these kinds of incidents rather than staying silent!

Because this is obviously not the women’s fault to be the victim of the Sexual Harassment!
