womens ugg boots sale uk MeToo to Go Beyond Just a Hashtag Movement
It’s been less than a week since Alyssa Milano helped the MeToo movement go viral. In a new interview on Good Morning America, the Project Runway All Stars judge addressed what the movement means to her and how she hopes to take it beyond a social media conversation.
“I just think it’s something that is so so prevalent,” Milano said in regards to the magnitude of the sexual harassment and assault problem. “It is a cultural issue that I think we have to face, and women posting ‘Me Too’ think gave them the courage to not have to tell their story or not have to name their predator but to just stand in solidarity. GMA’s Robin Roberts asked Milano when she thinks she’ll “be ready to share your story in full.”
“I’m not sure,” the Charmed actress responded. “I don’t know if I will ever publicly share my story. Of course, I’ve done my own healing and been through counseling and have a great support system in my life. But really this was about showing that this happens everywhere.”
Although she didn’t divulge specifics, Milano later added,
“I have been harassed so many times I can’t count. I’ve been assaulted.”
When Roberts asked Milano how she hoped to take this movement beyond a conversation, Milano said, “It has to go beyond just a hashtag movement.” She also talked about establishing protocols and defining “those lines so that men know that they cannot cross them.”
In addition, she encouraged viewers to continue to speak out and to offer suggestions for continuing to mobilize this movement.
“I really want this to be about the every woman’s voice,” she told Roberts. “I want it to be is your movement, women. This is your time. And if I can be the vessel and hold the bullhorn for you guys to shout as loud as humanly possible, then I’m honored to do so. But let’s fix this problem.”
