- By Joshua John
Thousands participated in the #MeToo March on 12 November, walking down Hollywood Boulevard in support of victims of sexual harassment in the entertainment industry. The #MeToo movement gained traction online when actress Alyssa Milano, following the allegations against producer Harvey Weinstein, sent out a tweet inviting women who have been sexually harassed or assaulted to write "me too" as a status. Facebook reported that 12 million posts, comments and reactions were recorded within 24 hours of the tweet.
