Yesterday a trending hashtag caught my eye.
A trending hashtag brought back repressed memories for hundreds and thousands of women around the world.
A trending hashtag brought those same women together.
Virtually all women stood up and said #metoo!
#metoo, to having been touched inappropriately.
#metoo, to having been raped, date raped, gang raped.
#metoo, to having been sexually molested or abused.
#metoo, to having been harassed at home work or on the street.
#metoo, to having been told to stay quiet!
#metoo, to having been told that “no one will believe you!”
#metoo, to having been told that “you asked for it”.
This trending hashtag showed the whole world yesterday that we are failing our children!
This can’t go on!
I want my daughter to know a world that can stand up and say “nonotme”!
I understand that this may be #notallmen … but this sure as hell is all women.
