#MeToo was created in 2006 by activist Tarana Burke who developed the idea as way to help women who had been sexually assaulted. The hashtag became a social media mainstay after actress Alyissa Milano, in a tweet, “urged every woman who had ever been sexually harassed or assaulted to write “me too” as a reply.” There were over 1.7 million replies. All this was occurring following revelations of Hollywood Mogul Harvey Weinstein overt sexual harassment – including charges of rape. That was just the beginning. Kevin Spacey. Louis C.K. Charlie Rose. Matt Lauer. There are others. Usually Time Magazine chooses an individual as its person of the year. The finalists were President Trump, Chinese President XI Jinping ( SHE GIN PING) and Quarterback Colin Kaepernick. But for 2017, Time announced the Person of the year is instead a movement – the thousands of people – around the globe – who have said # Me Too.
