While it was one high-profile case that started it all, there was another movement that brought every person into the fight against such actions. You may have seen the hashtag MeToo on social media. The #MeToo movement, according to The Atlantic, was started by actress Alyssa Milano to help bring awareness to the number of women who have experienced sexual assault or harassment.
