With #MeToo, Victims of Sexual Abuse Are Speaking Out. Many Happened Within the Church

Following horrific allegations of sexual harassment, abuse and rape against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, actress Alyssa Milano posted this on Twitter, “If all the women who have been sexually harassed or assaulted wrote ‘Me too’ as a status, we might give people a sense of the magnitude of the problem.”

Within hours, hundreds of thousands had used the hashtag to show just how pervasive the issue is.
