It’s equally horrifying and inspiring to watch these brave women come out and share accounts of harassment and abuse. 
Me too, I wish I didn’t have to write that. These events can leave wounds that no one can see on the outside but wreck a woman’s self worth and relationship to her world. I read that 90% of sexual harassment cases involve women as the victims. This is a global problem. Women and girls in all walks of life have stories of what it’s like to be sexually harassed, intimidated or abused. I truly hope this dialogue will make real and lasting change. #metoo metoo #stopsexualharrassment #realtalk #womenissues #shame #noshame #speakup
