Last year, the hashtag #MeToo has spread virally and was prevalently used in the social media to raise awareness against sexual harassment and assault. Until now, celebrities, high profile individuals, and regular Janes (and Joes), alike, use this hashtag to share their own #MeToo experiences. This movement has spread like wildfire and everybody were using this hashtag as a campaign to raise awareness especially among women who experienced abuse.
