#MeToo Should I feel guilty about being silent for too long?

#MeToo Should I feel guilty about being silent for too long?

"It made sense to say yes". But then she couldn't get him to leave her apartment. There was more to say. I watched as my loved ones, family and colleagues raised their hands online to be counted as victims of sexual assault and harassment - a move, the viral message said, to show the world just how many of us there are.

I woke up to #MeToo posts on Facebook and Twitter today.

State Rep. Melissa Sargent, D-Madison, shared the post.

Victims, including some in the Spokane area, shared stories of being assaulted and harassed by strangers, spouses, classmates, military comrades and trusted adults. "I have always blamed myself and tried to suppress the memories", he says.

"Don't ask what were you wearing, don't ask how much had you drunk, don't ask anyone that takes blame off the person who committed the crime". "I Did, and I'm Ready to Change.' It needs to be directed at men - we are the people that have allowed this to go on for way too long and it's time we stand up and do the right thing". "But we can't be better unless we're talking about it and taking steps".

"(It was) nearly like it was ticker tape rolling in", she said.

"We see this initiative - coupled with other initiatives - as really important to creating change in our society for anyone who experiences violence or harassment but particularly women as we know they are often the victims of this type of harassment", Kilfoil added.

"'Let's ask the boy 'Why did you rape her?" says Michelle Jay with the P.E.I.

As unsurprised as women were, many men said they were shocked at the number of women they knew who had experienced sexual assault and offered tweets of support. But as she scrolled through her social media feeds, reading more and more stories and anecdotes posted by friends, she began to realize how similar (and familiar) they really were.

The campaign is to highlight the prevalence of sexual abuse against women. No one talked about these things when she was growing up in Broken Arrow, Okla., she said; now, the messages on Facebook had her thinking about a connection between her assault and her subsequent struggles with her weight. The #MeToo movement could similarly embolden others to seek help, she said. "Liking a post is not advocacy".

Milano recently penned an essay in response to Harvey Weinstein's alleged sexual assaults, including statements by her "Charmed" costar Rose McGowan that Weinstein raped her.

"Imagine if every mother had a conversation with every son", Gee said. "Every woman that I know in my life has horrifying stories, if not just stories of everyday micro-aggression that happened on a sexual-harassment based level".

"Research shows that in fact large numbers of men do sexually harass or coerce women in various kinds of ways", he said.

"I don't feel so much that they're equating assault with harassment as that they're equating harassment with being a run-of-the-mill jackass", she said. "You have to put up with it if you want a seat at the table, '" she said. Or like a writer, who was questioned why she was partying when she was harassed in Goa. The session, on Wednesday, Oct. 18 from 12:30 p.m.to 1:30 p.m.in Sterling Hall, will teach participants to assess and safely intervene to stop or prevent sexual violence.

"Thornley-Parisi said staff at the Rape Crisis Center are discussing how they can build off the momentum and openness "#MeToo" encouraged.

But Stanish said the solution isn't a different hashtag.
