If you’ve been sexually harassed or assaulted write ‘me too’ as a reply to this tweet. pic.twitter.com/k2oeCiUf9n— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) October 15, 2017

Stand Up Against Sexual Harassment and Assault!!
The complicity of so many to keep sexual assault, abuse and harassment buried needs to end. You’re not saving face. Just stop. #MeToo— munchkin (@Feiawesomeol) October 16, 2017
Immensely proud of all who shared #metoo stories. Hoping the ripples become a tidal wave of societal change— Alexis Telfer (@AlexisTelfer) October 17, 2017
Reminder that if a woman didn't post #MeToo, it doesn't mean she wasn't sexually assaulted or harassed. Survivors don't owe you their story.— Alexis Benveniste (@apbenven) October 16, 2017
