In October of 2017, American actress Alyssa Milano posted on Twitter, “If all the women who have been sexually harassed or assaulted wrote ‘Me too’ as a status, we might give people a sense of the magnitude of the problem”.
Sexual harassment isn’t only in the corporates or big organizations it is present in all industries, however, sometimes talk about this topic can start uncomfortable conversations at the workplace.
According to The New York Times, the #MeToo Movement brought down 201 powerful men and nearly half of their replacements are women.
These prominent men have lost their jobs after public allegations of sexual harassment. At least 920 people came forward to say that one of these men subjected them to sexual misconduct.
