#MeToo

The hashtag #MeToo came to prominence on Twitter. Its first use was in 2006.

Tarana Burke, a community organizer, sexual abuse survivor, and social justice activist, is the originator of the hashtag. Her mission is “empowerment through empathy.” She provides support for survivors of sexual assault and harassment from vulnerable groups.

In 2017, actor Alyssa Milano tweeted the hashtag in response to allegations of sexual abuse against Harvey Weinstein. Milano suggested that people who experienced sexual harassment or assault use the #MeToo as a status, in the hope of helping others understand the magnitude of the problem.

The hashtag went viral. Several Hollywood celebrities, including Ashley Judd, Anthony Rapp, Gwyneth Paltrow, Terry Crews, and Uma Thurman, used it in their Tweets. This gave rise to the #MeToo movement.
