The #MeToo Movement is a movement to shed light on the prevalence of sexual assault and to acknowledge the the numerous accounts of sexual harassment in the workplace. This movement took off after recent allegations made against Harvey Weinstein which then followed up with more than a dozen men being accused of the same thing. The Movement started less than 2 Months ago and already has taken over the United States. It is so powerful because the movement shows that women are being treated terribly behind closed doors.
