Throughout Twitter, there have been many tweets associated with the phrase “Me too”. These tweets began flooding the app as Alyssa Milano tweeted this, “If you’ve been sexually harassed or assaulted write ‘me too’ as a reply to this tweet.” After this tweet, over 63,000 women replied to the tweet. This including many celebrities and Broadway stars such as Laura Dreyfuss and Molly Hager. When big names began replying to the tweet, the campaign became even more publicized. The real meaning of this campaign is for women to get a chance to display that just because they were sexually assaulted, it does not mean they gave up. It shows that women need to be treated with just as much respect as everyone else. This movement created a platform for women to express how they feel and be able to speak out. Showing respect is a form of kindness, and every single person should be treated with kindness no matter what the circumstance is. Women are people too, just like the rest of the humans living on this planet.
