Over the last few days, survivors of sexual assault and sexual harassment have posted a simple "Me, too" on Twitter and Facebook. This little phrase is filling up timelines to bring awareness to how many people are victims of unwanted sexual advances. It comes after Harvey Weinstein sexual assault allegations.
Celebrities have joined in.
Perhaps one of the most overwhelming is the student community, though. On college campuses, 11.2% of students have experienced rape or sexual assault. For undergraduate students alone, 23.1% of females and 5.4% of males have experienced rape or sexual assault. And these numbers can go higher dependent on your sexuality and race.
While a lot of social media users have posted #MeToo, the trend has not been easy to join in on. Many fear getting fired from their jobs for being a liability or having to explain their unwanted sexual assault or rape to people they know.
In response, men have started using the hashtag "How I will change."
