Women Say MeToo as Sex Abuse Victims
This is What's Trending Today....
Around the world, the words "Me Too" are appearing in high numbers on Twitter and Facebook.
The simple message carries strong meaning.
It all started on Sunday with a tweet from American actor Alyssa Milano. She wrote that women who have experienced sexual harassment or assault should leave the message "Me Too" on social media.
Her aim was to show how often women have experienced sexual abuse.
Milano wrote, "Suggestion by a friend: If all 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."
Milano's tweet came after the recent accusations against Hollywood movie producer Harvey Weinstein. More than 20 women have said that he sexually abused them. Among the accusers are movie stars Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow and Rosanna Arquette.
The hashtag #MeToo soon became a top worldwide trending topic on Twitter. More than 40,000 people have followed Milano's suggestion. And over 200,000 have used the hashtag on Twitter. Famous people, such as singers Lady Gaga and Sheryl Crow and New Zealand actress Anna Paquin, identified themselves as victims.
Some women shared their personal experiences of being sexually harassed or assaulted.
Others simply wrote, "Me too."
Some men wrote it, too.
Milano is known for her work on the American television series "Who's the Boss?" and "Melrose Place." She also was in the show "Charmed" with actor Rose McGowan, one of the women accusing Weinstein of abuse.
In another post, Milano wrote on Twitter that the accusations against Weinstein have "sickened and angered" her. But she added she is "happy" that it has led to discussion of the "continued sexual harassment, objectification and degradation of women."

事情源于周日美国演员艾莉莎·米兰诺（Alyssa Milano）发的一条推特 。她写道，那些经历过性骚扰或性侵犯的女性应该在社交媒体写下“我也是”的留言 。
米兰诺的推文是在近日好莱坞电影制片人哈维·韦恩斯坦（Harvey Weinstein）被控告后发布的 。20多名女星直言曾被他性虐待 。受害人包括电影明星安吉莉娜·朱莉（Angelina Jolie）、格温妮丝·帕特洛（Gwyneth Paltrow）和罗姗娜·阿奎特（Rosanna Arquette） 。
“我也是”的话题标签迅速登顶推特全球热门话题 。超过4万人听从了米兰诺的建议，超过20万的推特用户使用了这一标签 。其中歌坛天后Lady Gaga、雪儿·克罗（Sheryl Crow）及新西兰女演员安娜·帕奎因（Anna Paquin）都声称自己是受害者 。
米兰诺凭借在美国电视连续剧《谁是老大》和《飞跃情海》中的演技惊艳众人 。她曾与罗丝·麦高恩合体出演电视剧“《圣女魔咒》”，罗丝·麦高恩是指控韦恩斯坦性虐待的女星之一 。
米兰诺在另一篇推文里写道，对韦恩斯坦的指控“让她恶心并恼火” 。但她还指出，她很“庆幸”这件事情引发对“女性的持续性骚扰、物化和贬低”的热议 。
