The #MeToo movement, with many local and international alternatives, is a movement against sexual harassment and sexual assault.
The movement spread virally in October 2017 as a hashtag used on social media in an attempt to demonstrate the widespread prevalence of sexual assault and harassment, especially in the workplace. Unlike many kinds of social-media activism, it isn’t a call to action or the beginning of a campaign, culminating in a series of protests, speeches and events. The movement is about enough being enough and holding those individuals responsible for their indiscretions.
There are other forms of harassment than sexual, and we should not approve of any of them. But the focus on sexual harassment is dangerous, because the term is so broad and undefined. So far the #metoo movement has come down to anything that a woman says is indoctrinated to see it as she says without proof. This is a good way to destroy relations between the genders.
