Alyssa Milano's 'Me Too' Tweet Raises Sexual Assault Awareness

Alyssa Milano's 'Me Too' Tweet Raises Sexual Assault Awareness

The term #MeToo trended on Twitter all day on Sunday (October 15), thanks in large part to Alyssa Milano.

In the wake of the Harvey Weinstein sexual assault scandal, the 44-year-old actress tweeted an idea: “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.”

“If you’ve been sexually harassed or assaulted write ‘me too’ as a reply to this tweet,” she wrote.

Responses have come flooding in ever since from hundreds of women, including “me too” replies from Debra Messing and Anna Paquin.

Lea Thompson, Kristin Bauer, Sophia Bush and Anika Noni Rose are just a few of the other stars who have replied to the powerful movement.

See Alyssa‘s tweet, as well as the replies, below.

    in general i agree, but what if the guy does it over and over again to the same woman. like asking her out (forcefully) for a few days or weeks? then it is harassing if she doesn’t like him or want his interest. but propositioning once is not.

    she was on that show with McGowan, so wuldn’t be surprised if HW had his way with her

    Perhaps not all men, but yes all women

    I agree if a guy start asking you over and over and forcefully then, of course, it’s harassment. But once? Nope.
