The great actresses of Hollywood will wear black this January 7, as a protest for the harassment suffered by thousands of women every day and that does not leave out the great film and television machinery.
The actions began after the New York Times revealed the allegations against Harvey Weinstein by dozens of women who were sexually harassed. The scandal has been in crescendo and in addition to the famous producer, also involves Kevin Spacey, Geoffrey Rush, Dustin Hoffman, Brett Ratner and James Toback among many others.
In the wake of the heartbreaking stories, actress Alyssa Milano and singer Lady Gaga were the first to share on Twitter the hashtag #MeToo , which in just seconds went viral. From Congresswoman Jackie Speier, to unknown men and women also joined the campaign that broke the silence on a problem that still remains behind the scenes.
"... only in 48 hours, the hashtag was used a million times thanks to all the men and women who, throughout the world, shared their stories in search of justice, understanding or conscience", says an article of the Vanidades magazine.
Precisely because of the impact caused in cyberspace, Times magazine selected it as person of the year, the publication's first exception to give such recognition to a movement and not to a specific person.
#MeToo continues raising the voices against the harassment. At home, at work, on the street ..., harassment is wrong and illegal. It violates our rights, our privacy, our body; even when there is no physical violence.
The fact that Hollywood girls show their anger at the problem is undoubtedly a sign of the level at which the harassment takes place and also that comprehension is gradually widening.
You have to be very brave to say #MeToo.
